Gymnast’s US dream

Posted on October 31 2016 at 11:06:07

Kelsie

A young Alvechurch gymnast is appealing for donations to help her compete in America.

Kelsie Clohessy-Daly, aged 11, is one of 13 girls from the City of Birmingham Gymnastics Club selected to represent Birmingham at the Magical Classic International in Florida next February.   

Kelsie, who joined the club in 2010, has competed at national level and is part of the West Midlands Regional Squad. The girls train for a minimum of five days a week with Level 5 high performance coaches.

The club aims to take 13 elite squad girls between the ages of ten and sixteen to Florida, along with four squad coaches, and is looking to raise £17,000 to cover entry fees, flights, local travel, hotels, equipment and food.

If you would like to make a donation, you can do so at http://www.gofundme.com/gymnastkelsie or visit http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk and search “Help our elite gymnasts get to America”.
