Since my last blog I’ve watched the GB team depart for the World Championships, and more success for a GB gymnast.
I spent my first week back at Lilleshall with the medical team putting me through intensive testing. They have also drafted me a new rehab programme that will push me on to the next level of my recovery.
My training is getting better every week. I have been learning a couple of new skills and perfecting some old ones whilst protecting my knees from heavy impacts – I feel my pommel is almost as good as it has ever been.
It was good to work alongside the World Championships Team as they finalised their routines and perfected some new skills in their final week before departing for Rotterdam. I even got to judge the team in a control competition at Lilleshall and the team is looking really strong and in good shape. I wish them all the best of luck, not that they need it…
WELL DONE LUKE!!! A big shout-out has to go to Luke Folwell my close friend and training partner at Huntingdon as he has just become the most successful Commonwealth Games gymnast ever, claiming a total of
5 medals in Dehli to go with the one he claimed in Melbourne.
Luke claimed gold in the coveted All Around competition and a gold on vault, as well as silver medals in the Team event, P-Bars and Rings. What a huge moment and a well deserved result after 19 years of commitment and hard work.
Next week I have a couple of days in the gym before leaving for Rotterdam on Thursday to support Team GB and work with the BBC in the commentary box. So watch out for my next blog and hopefully I should have more good news on the success of Team GB.
