Ireland to host 2012 training camp for China


It has been an anxious wait for Salto National Gymnastics Centre in Lisburn, Northern Ireland but today they could finally announce that the centre will host the 2012 Training Camp for the Chinese Olympic Team.  After a visit by Chinese coaches Xiong Jingbin and Jin Weiguo  in mid July, Salto have managed to secure the MAG and WAG Chinese Olympic Teams for a 2012 holding camp in July prior to the London 2012 Games. The Chinese delegation of 30 people will base themselves in Lisburn for 10 days next summer.

A press conference is currently under way and the news will be covered in the media later on today. BBC News have already covered this fantastic news, congratulations to all involved.
