At the beginning of March when coronavirus started to spread across the country we all knew the inevitable was coming despite non of us wanting it too but on Friday 20th March the Prime Minister announced he was locking down the country and all sports clubs had to close. We were gutted to say the least, the gymnasts were gutted and the look on their faces will be something we never forget.
However, we knew that we needed to stick together, through working as a team and supporting each other through the lockdown – after all we had no idea how it was going to last.
Straight away we planned zoom conditioning, Facebook live sessions to keep the gymnasts active and healthy but that wasn’t all we looked back at favourite memories each week, created timelines and sent our families off on crazy challenges.
It was a difficult time for everyone but by working together we got through it with a smile.
