My name is Lucy Costello, I am 16 years old. I'm a member of the GB National Squad in Tumbling Gymnastics and I travel to Wakefield five times a week to train.
This year alone I have attended a training camp in Denmark, and also travelled to Portugal in September to represent GB in the Loule Cup, where I became the Loule Junior Champion.
I have recently taken part in the British Championships and finished with a Bronze Medal.
I have been selected to represent Great Britain in the 15/16 age group in the World Championships, which will be held in Daytona, USA in November 2014.
There is no funding for this sport and all activities are self-financed. There are also additional costs involved, including a week's training camp in Littleshall, and competition kit.
Any donation would be amazing!! :)
