THERE was a treat for members of the Fenland Gymnastics Academy when they had a question-and-answer session with Luke Folwell, the double Commonwealth gold medallist and British Artistic Team member.

Head coach, Stewart Harrison, said: “All the gymnasts have worked exceptionally hard this past year with many fantastic performances across the ability spectrum, as a result, I organised for Luke to come down and meet them.”

Folwell, who will be looking to secure a place in the British team for 2012 Olympics, showed his vast array of medals, posed for photographs and gave an inspirational and motivational talk to the gymnasts, some of whom are aspiring to the heights that Luke has achieved.

Fenland Gymnastics Academy has expanded its classes to include a proficiency badge programme based on the British Gymnastics Badge Scheme. For more information go to or call 07716 480402.
