Thank you so much everyone who signed the petition. The GB Rhythmic Group have now won their appeal and will be taking their rightful place at London 2012! Good luck girls!!!!
GB Rhythmic Gymnastics Group are a talented and dedicated group of rhythmic gymnasts who have been training hard full time with NO funding to be able to achieve their dream of competing at London 2012.
Even though there is a host country place available for them at the Games, British Gymnastics are choosing NOT to nominate them for this! At the Olympic Test Event, BG/BOA chose to set a benchmark score they wanted the girls to achieve.
Despite being agonisingly short (.273 points) of this target on qualification day and actually exceeding the score during the finals - BG have refused to give them this golden opportunity they have worked so hard for!
Please sign the petition to help get these girls to the Games and promote the beautiful sport of Rhythmic Gymnastics in the UK!
We, the undersigned, call for British Gymnastics to allow the GB Rhythmic Group to compete at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
