Twelve year old Lauren Matthews is an Elite gymnast competing in artistic gymnastics (Vault, Bars, Beam and Floor), training for 26 hours a week at Sapphire Gymnastics Club, Hemel Hempstead. Lauren has had a great year so far and as a result has been selected as one of only eight girls (12/13yrs) for the England Squad and is working hard on increasing the difficulty of her moves and working towards potential selection for international competitions where she could represent England and also the British Championships later in the year.  “Doing gymnastics has given Lauren confidence, team spirit, determination, mental strength, organization and discipline.” says Mum Gabi, “ She fits training around her school work and has to sacrifice parties and sleepovers but totally loves it.”

 

Lauren, who attend Berkhamsted School, wins a £10 gift voucher for Chorleywood Sports
