A talented young gymnast from Stirling has won a gold medal at a major gymnastics event in Liverpool.
Cameron Lynn became British champion in the men’s under 16 category at the 2019 Artistic British Championships
The 15-year-old gymnast said: “I’m quite surprised to be honest but it feels amazing to be a British Champion. I love competing, it’s just so much fun. My hopes for the future are to go back to my club, continue to work hard and hopefully get up there next year with the other boys in the under 18s category.”
Almost 500 gymnasts took part in the televised, four-day event, including five-time Olympic medalist Max Whitlock.
Jane Allen, Chief Executive of British Gymnastics said: “It’s been a remarkable four days at this year’s Artistic British Championships in Liverpool. I’ve really enjoyed seeing so many of the established names sharing the Arena with up-and-coming stars. The talent on display has been phenomenal and I’m very excited to see what the future looks like for gymnastics in Britain. Liverpool has once again staged an outstanding event and I’m thrilled that the city will play host to the World Championships when its staged in Britain in 2022.”
