Three gymnasts from Crewe & Nantwich have travelled to Portugal this week to compete in a European competition for Great Britain.

Will Calder, Chloe Gough and Nicole Hazell are competing for their country in the TeamGym European Championships.

A spokesperson for the club said: “We are honoured to have them as part of our club.

“They are fantastic role models and an inspiration to all gymnasts.

“They have overcome injuries, lockdowns and endured home training to still be selected to represent their country.”

It has been a busy couple of months for Crewe and Nantwich Gymnastics Club (CNGC) since their return to competition after Covid.

Two gymnasts competed in the Women’s Artistic National Grade 5 and 3 with both gymnasts passing with commendations.

And one team gained an overall silver medal whilst keeping as a mixed gender team against men and women. The team included Will, Joe, Nicole Hazell and Kim Sasi.

October has also been a busy and successful month and there were more medals to come.

The North West Level 5 and 6 competition in October involved gymnasts from the club competing for the first time since the pandemic.

The North West Levels 4, 3 and 2 competition saw gymnasts winning nine bronze medals, two silver medals and six gold medals including an overall champion trophy from just four gymnasts competing in this competition.

A club spokesperson said: “CNGC always welcomes new members to try out gymnastics and follow in the footsteps of our competitive gymnasts as well as encouraging gymnastics for fun and fitness.

“We are currently offering a free first session to any new member who would like to give gymnastics a try.”
