Online & Television Coverage

Olympian Jenni Pinches will be tweeting coverage on @BGMediaTeam and BGTV will be uploading the videos to youtube.

BBC will also be streaming online, unfortunately it is only available in Britain here. It will be shown on the BBC Sport website between 1pm and 3pm and also on BBC 1 between 1pm and 3pm on Sunday 15th, although we’ll have already seen routines by then.

Full Twist had hoped to be at this years Glasgow World Cup as we had such a fantastic time back in 2010, unfortunately it clashed with an important training schedule. Here’s to next year!

    Is Price professional? If not, who gets the top prize money – does Wieber get it, or does it go unclaimed?
