So, this last few days, in Liverpool have/are being held the annual World Gymnastic champions for both Men and Women Artistic gymnasts. The very best in the world are there, competing for team, and individual medals. Spurred on by the top three teams in both events will have their places in Paris Olympics.
None of the preliminaries of these competitions, staged over the past few days have had any tv time. But last night the Women's team competition (top 24 teams from prelims). went head to head, toe to toe. GB came in an amazing second place (to USA), It was an exciting competition, with results really going to final work on each apparatus.
As someone who was so involved with this wonderful sport since the 1970's I am still in a daze at this incredible result - so very well deserved by our young ladies. To see our women on a world team medal podium was something that was only in our dreams in those distant days.
Tonight it is the turn of our men, also seeking a rotrum place, medals and a ticket to Paris. BBC 2 for this (the women were only on BBC 3).
