Two weeks to go to the British Championship Series in Liverpool Echo Arena. At the event British Gymnastics will be honouring some of the gymnasts who have represented GBR πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ at the highest international senior level. One of our own Directors - Alex Smith is among the honours list. Alex represented GBR in 2006 in Ostrava, Czech Republic πŸ‡¨πŸ‡Ώ, 2010 in Malmo, Sweden πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ͺ, and 2012 in Aarhus, Denmark πŸ‡©πŸ‡°. Today this is the criteria for Master Gymnast. Alex was also British TeamGym Champion in 2009, 2010 and 2012. During his career Alex had retired at least twice (so far πŸ˜‰) - Gymnasts never die - they just take a little longer to full in πŸ˜‚

Alex was also part of the TV show - Let's get gold, where he also acted as the spokesperson for the team during their TV spot. Consequently we now try to use Alex for announcing when ever we can πŸ˜‚

Congratulations Alex - this award is all about recognising those that got TeamGym to where it is today. You've been an important part of that journey and the history of GB's success.
