As some of you know i operate a small community gymnastics club in Cheshire, I mean small 3 hours a week but still British Gymnastics registered and club marked.
Well Sunday I had a 10 year old girl in the British open championship for gymnasts with dissabilities in Newcastle, she was born with one arm but still a normal 10 year old who has taken all in her stride.

Well the outcome is she is now the Under 12's GMPD british Champion, to say I was please watching is an understatement her parents were in tears of joy.
She is now waiting for her selection for the British Squad.

Before anyone asks what GMPD means ( General Moves for People with Dissabilites )

That is beautiful Jim. :clapping:

Life is what you make it.

Having 4 kids of our own with "issues" we get lots of life every day.

i have worked and waited for 10 years for this, but i never expected it too ever come so soon. It's a once chance and all it took to start was an e-mail, she was mobbed by friends at school today when they found out as she is such a star. :)
