English Championships Begin Tomorrow in Loughborough


This year’s English Championships begin tomorrow, Friday March 13, in Loughborough and the competition is going to be stiff.

All members of the senior women’s 2014 World Championships team will be present, with the exception of Hannah Whelan, who recently announced her retirement.

Ruby Harrold, Kelly Simm, Becky Downie, Gabby Jupp, Claudia Fragapane, and alternate Charlie Fellows are set to compete in the second session on Saturday along with promising new seniors Ellie Downie (the 2014 Youth Olympic Games all-around bronze medalist), Tyesha Mattis, and Amy Tinkler. Also on the roster is gymternet favorite Lisa Mason, the 33-year-old who retired after competing at the 2000 Olympic Games and then made a comeback in 2013.

The competition will also showcase several prominent senior guest athletes, including Grace Harrison of Isle of Man, Claudia Chmielowska who competes internationally for Poland, this year’s Scottish champion Amy Regan, Hungary’s Aisa Kajouk, and Georgina Hockenhull of Wales, who missed the Welsh Championships earlier this month though did well at the WOGA Classic in February, earning a 53.1 in the all-around.

Big names in the junior pool include Catherine Lyons and Scottish junior champion Louise McColgan.

The men’s field includes 2014 World all-around silver medalist Max Whitlock alongside Worlds team members Daniel Keatings, Kristian Thomas, and Courtney Tulloch. Both Nile Wilson and Daniel Purvis, who won the Scottish Championship title last month before competing at the American Cup last weekend, will be absent.

Two-time Olympian Louis Smith, who medaled on pommel horse both in Beijing and in London, will also compete after earning pommel horse bronze and helping his team to Commonwealth Games gold last summer, as will 2012 Olympian Sam Oldham, who makes his return to competition after suffering an ankle injury during the Commonwealth Games team final.

    • Dealing with injuries still I believe…she was supposed to compete at the Glasgow World Cup in December but backed out at the last minute, so my guess is that she’s on her way back but isn’t quite there yet.
