Daniel Keatings is by far one of my favourite male gymnasts. I’m glad to see that following his disappointment at not being named to the London 2012 Olympic team that he will continue on training. In male gymnast terms, at 22 he’s very young. In his latest blog post he sets out his goals, short term and long term:
- Short term: my focus will be on the European and World Championships in 2013/2014;
- Medium term: my focus will be on representing Scotland at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow; and
- Long term: my focus will be the World Championships in Glasgow in 2015 and the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016.
I’m rooting for Dan, the three time European Championships medalist, hoping he stays clean of injuries following his unlucky bout in the last 2 years. I’ve missed his gymnastics on the international circuit and am looking forward to seeing more of it once the season kicks off again.
