    I’m really excited to see the Brits compete at these worlds. I’m definitely expecting both teams to make it to TFs and I’m definitely going to pay much more attention to mens gymnastics this year and follow the British men throughout the competition…. just need to figure out pommel horse first.

  2. Jess says:

    Fantastic teams!! Fingers crossed both perform as they know they can and qualify to TF and most importantly the olympics!!
    So happy for Laura Edwards too! Only girl on the WAG team that hasn’t already been to a world champs! Going to be a great experience for her even if she doesn’t compete!

    Thanks for your comment Toni, no doubt about it that both teams will make the TF’s and I really think the Men’s team have a fantastic shot at placing in the medals. It’d be fantastic to see both teams up there!

  4. Admin says:

    Thanks for your comment Jess, they’re great teams. I’m also delighted for Laura Edwards and she’s so lucky to be travelling with such an experienced team! I totally agree will be a great experience even if she is the reserve!
