SEGC’s top men preparing for Westminster Cup

SEGC’S top five male gymnasts are gearing up for a crack at the 2019 Westminster Cup.

British stars Max Whitlock, Brinn Bevan and Jay Thompson along with Jamaican Reiss Beckford and Cypriot Tommy Nicolaou will join forces at the club team championships and international, which will also double as the first trial for this year’s World Championships.

SEGC Director of Coaching Scott Hann said: “We have had several minor injuries which means the team will not be at full strength, but as always we will go to give it our all.

“Max will compete on floor, pommel, p-bar and high bar and will be hoping to claim his place on the British team for this year’s World Championships. The week after is the London Open and final trial.

“Brinn will also be trialling, but after a fall from high bar earlier in the week, will only do a few apparatus. We hope he will be ready to compete on all six at the London Open.”

SEGC’s Hayden Skinner has also been selected to represent Great Britain in the international section of this event.
