Great Britain’s 2021 European Championship squad includes a couple of Kent representatives.
Pegasus Gymnastic Club’s Courtney Tulloch and Dartford’s Giarnni Regini-Moran have been selected for the event in Basel, Switzerland from April 21-25.
The Championships represent an opportunity for gymnasts to qualify additional places for Team GB at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, taking place this summer.
Tulloch won gold for Team England at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and is a two-time medallist at the European Championships.
Regini-Moran was all-round silver at the British Championships in 2019 and was a European junior champion in 2016.
James Hall, also a member at Maidstone club Pegasus, has been named as a non-travelling reserve.
British Gymnastics performance director James Thomas said: “We are grateful to our close community of coaches and clubs who have gone above and beyond to provide a safe training facility for our elite athletes in spite of the many challenges they have faced over the last 12 months.
“The fantastic depth of talent in Great Britain is demonstrated by those not competing at this event and it’s important to note again that multiple factors came into consideration and that also this event in no way pre-curses the Olympic selection process which continues into May.
“We are all extremely excited to see such incredibly talented gymnasts back proudly competing with the GB flag as we aim for a safe and successful championships.”
