No Daniel Keatings for European Championships


The nominative entries for the 2011 European Championships were released yesterday. The British WAG competitors  will consist of Beth Tweddle, Danusia Francis, Hannah Whelan and Jennifer Pinches. Becky Downie is still injured, I’m not sure about Imogen Cairns. I think that both Whelan and Pinches could do well. Tweddle as always will be one to watch on Floor and Uneven Bars.

Sam Oldham, Louis Smith, Kristian Thomas, Daniel Purvis, Samuel Hunter and Theo Seager will compete for the British MAG. Daniel Keatings who had hoped to make the cut, isn’t on the team. A real shame, I love Dan as a person and a gymnast, I would love to have seen him in this years Euro’s.

Speaking of Dan, Rick from Gymnastics Coaching named him as his choice in the latest question round on Gymnastics McLaughlin Group over on Gymnastics Examiner. This weeks question put to the bloggers was “Who is the most underated male gymnast in the World?“. Make sure to check it out. Full Twist decided on Dan’s team mates Dan Purvis or Louis Smith.

Unfortunately only Charlotte Johnson will compete in WAG for Ireland. Luke Carson, Kieran Behan (who performed very well at the Cottbus Cup), Chris O’Connor and Anthony O’Donnell will compete in MAG.

    No Dan?! But why!?! 🙁

    He is hands down my favorite gymnast and my biggest inspiration. Any news on why he isn’t on the Euros team?
