Libby Lockett (12) makes her international debut against Sweden.

12-YEAR-OLD Libby Lockett, a student at Gordano and a member of The Academy of Gymnastics in Portishead, was recently selected to represent Great Britain in her first international against Sweden.

Libby was part of the six-strong GBR women’s artistic gymnastics espoir team held at Lilleshall National Sport Centre in Shropshire recently.

It was a great opportunity for the girls to put their routines to the test and wear the GB colours with pride. The British girls dominated the floor and beam and Libby put in some excellent performance for the team and top scored in the beam.

The Great British team won the international with a five point margin.
