Leeds has a proud tradition in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics with two Olympians who later turned their talents to coaching and choreography for the club. In addition, Great Britain has made huge strides in the last decade to become a world power in gymnastics competing alongside the traditionally strong nations of Russia, China, Romania and the U.S. led by the likes of Beth Tweddle and Hannah Whelan, so there’s never been a better time to get involved in gymnastics.
