Local gymnast Jordan Lucas is presently in Birmingham for the World Tumbling Championships, which are being held in the National Indoor Arena.

This is the 28th Trampoline and Tumbling World Championships which brings together top gymnasts from across the globe. Jordan has been training today for the first qualification rounds on Friday morning.
The Final of the Team event is on Saturday while the Individual Finals are on Sunday.

17-year old Jordan sent a message and a picture of the team to the official town website, saying:

…both routines going well and I will be competing on Friday at roughly 10am

We wish Jordan the very best – and send him this message…

“The whole of Whitchurch is cheering for you.”

    Hi All,

    Jordan and the team have done an amazing job by getting into the Senior Men’s Team Final tomorrow. They go into the Competition in third place so hopefully they can ‘hold’ that and medal. We are very proud of all of them. It’s quite an achievement as Team GB are the youngest competitors, with Jordan actually being the youngest out of the whole Competition. The Russians average 24 years of age but are only 2 points ahead of our guys in 2nd place !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fingers crossed for the Finals and if anyone fancies watching it’s on BBC 1 (on the Red Button } about 7:00 and will only last about 15-20 minutes !!!!! It’s like the 100m in Athletics (don’t last long but spectacular).

    Kind regards to all……

    Justine and Kevin

    Jordan and the rest of the GB guys finished in 4th in the senior men’s team final. A great job done, considering they were by far the youngest team!! Unfortunately Shaun over rotated in his triple back somersault landing, so lost the score to his ending but a great experience for the guys and we are sure they will be an even more amazing team in future Worlds.

    Jordan and the guys will be back training next week, in preparation for the forth coming Europeans:-)
