Keen youngsters across the area attended the gymnastics championships hosted by Tweddle and her company Total Gymnastics Academies at Oldham Leisure Centre.

She is passionate about getting children involved with gymnastics and to experience the many benefits the sport has to offer, including improving health, wellbeing and overall confidence.

"It’s such a great way to celebrate the hard work the children and coaches put in over the terms.
"The aim of the championships is to spur children on in their gymnastics development and to make sure they have fun, which we definitely achieved.
"There’s always a great energy at these events and this one was no different - I can’t wait for the next one."
