Gymnast Georgia-Mae Fenton will be going for gold after being selected to represent Great Britain at the European Youth Olympics.
The 14-year-old, of Bartlett Road, Gravesend, will compete in Tbilisi, Georgia, at the end of the month.
Her selection for Team GB is just another leap forward in her quest to represent her country at the Olympics in Rio next year.
Georgia-Mae, a pupil at Meopham School, was said by her mum, Lisa, to be delighted with the news, announced yesterday (Tuesday).
"She has been working so hard and just keeps her eyes on aiming high," said the mum-of-three.
"Her family are hugely proud of her and her commitment to achieving her dreams. I even shed a tear when we heard."
The fact she shares her name with the country where she will be competing could be a good omen for the teenager, who trains at the East London Gymnastics Club in Beckton for at least 32 hours a week.
Earlier this year Georgia-Mae was crowned British Junior Gymnastics Champion 2015 on asymmetric bars, and also won bronze in the all-round category after competing on bars, floor, vault and beam.
