Inspirational people from the gymnastics community have been recognised at the 2020 British Gymnastics National Awards, held at The International Centre, Telford.
Nearly 400 people attended the evening where the outstanding achievements made by gymnasts, volunteers, coaches, clubs and community members were acknowledged.
Winners and recipients from grassroots to elite level were presented with their awards at the ceremony, hosted by BBC Breakfast and BBC Sport presenter Holly Hamilton. With members of the community and a host of European, world and Olympic medallists in attendance, it was a night of celebration in Telford.
British Gymnastics’ Patron, The Rt Hon Sir John Major KG CH, who we were delighted to welcome to awards, said: “Gymnastics is an art as well as a sport and every single one of our successes is a reward of dedication and of high-quality coaching.
“I warmly congratulate all of our winners this evening. I think it is likely that everyone here, in one way or another, has contributed to the growing success of gymnastics, and so as Patron, I would like to thank you for all you have done in the past, and for all, I hope, you will continue to in the future; because the future of gymnastics looks very promising indeed.”
Weston was shortlisted as one of the 3 nominees at this event and the clubs manager and coaching team attended the wonderful evening.
