Good Luck Laura!!!

Good luck to Laura, who travels to Serbia this weekend to represent Wales at a big international.

Laura is a member of the Welsh national squad working towards the 2014 Commonwealth Games. 


This is an amazing opportunity for Laura and great for Esprit Rhythmic Gymnastics (South). 


All gymnasts in Esprit’s Junior and Senior, elite individual competition squad, will have now competed for England or Wales along with Laura, Steph and Tyler who have also represented Great Britain!


Amazing stuff, well done girls.
