Gymnast Rex Booth has been selected to represent Great Britain at the World Acrobatic Championships taking place in Baku, Azerbaijan at the end of the month.

After a strong performance at the 2021 European Acrobatic Championships, the Fifth Year Hamptonian, along with three teammates from Richmond Gymnastics Association, secured a Bronze medal for Great Britain. The young gymnasts received high praise from the judges for their complex routines. Rex now hopes to repeat this success at the World Acrobatic Championships in Baku competing in the Men’s Group (12-18 years).

Richmond Gymnastic Association’s Head of Acrobatics congratulated the gymnasts on their selection for Team GB:

We are so pleased to see the hard work of our gymnasts pay off with selections to represent Great Britain in both 2021 and 2022. With all the challenges they have faced over the last two years, we are delighted that they have the opportunity to compete again internationally, and we hope they enjoy the experience.
