Mabelle Makes GB Gymnastics Squad

  • Gymnast Y7 (1)

Over the weekend, Mabelle Dawson, a Y7 pupil at Bolton School Girls’ Division, was delighted to learn the exciting news that following her 6th place finish in Great Britain in a National Gymnastics competition held three weeks ago in Guildford, she has been selected to attend the GB Home Nations squad for 2019.   

Earlier in the Term, Mabelle became the North West Champion for her age group. 

Mrs Felicity Dawson, Mabelle’s mum, said: “We are extremely proud of what Mabelle has managed to achieve so far in her gymnastics. Hopefully she will pass her level one grading at the beginning of February, which will then mean she can compete in the British Championships - next year is certainly shaping up to be a very busy and exciting year for her.”

Last year Mabelle was selected to attend GB Development squad training camps at the National Sports Centre in Lilleshall, where she has been training alongside the six best gymnasts in Great Britain in her age group.

Mabelle has practised gymnastics since she was three years old and trains five or six times a week with the City of Manchester Gymnastics club.
