Whelan & Reddin on London 2012

The Guardian have posted a video of British Gymnastics star Hannah Whelan and Coach Amanda Reddin on her hopes of  achieving a place on the strong GB Women’s Team for the Games. They also reflect on her first Olympic Performance in Beijing four years ago. Funnily, Hannah describes each piece of apparatus, they show a Pommel Horse instead of the Vaulting table.

In the video that was shot before the 2011 World Championships. Amanda explains that Hannah is currently doing a 5.3 on vault but is hoping to do a 5.8 for the Olympics. Her start value on bars is currently 5.8  and beam is 6 which they hope could be upgraded to a 6.2 or 6.3. Hannah is strong on floor and has a 5.8. We can see Hannah working a new dismount on beam also.

In Tokyo, for qualification, Hannah had a start value of 5.9 on beam, 5.3 on bars, 5.8 on floor and 5.3 on vault.
