Maidstone's Pegasus gym goes for gold in national awards

Friday 11th January 2019

MAIDSTONE’S Pegasus Gymnastics Club has been shortlisted for a major honour.

British Gymnastics, the sport’s governing body, has named it among finalists for the National Club Award 2019.

The recognition has been prompted by Tovil-based Pegasus's phenomenal success. Its gymnasts snatched 22 international and 40 national medals during 2018.

Nine of its people were selected for the national squad. And resident gym champs Courtney Tulloch and James Hall shared six medals at the Commonwealth Games.

Pegasus will now go head-to-head with fellow finalists Sunderland’s AAAsports and DC Gymnastics from Berwick-upon-Tweed.

The winner will be announced at a ceremony on January 26 at Birmingham Town Hall.
