BBC to cover British Gymnastics Championships

The final day of the 2016 British Gymnastics Championships will be covered live by UK public-service broadcaster the BBC.

The three-day event takes place from April 8-10 at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, England. The BBC will broadcast live action on Sunday, April 10.

Jane Allen, British Gymnastics chief executive, said: “There is a very large, and growing, interest in gymnastics in the UK and the decision to broadcast the upcoming Championships is testament to this and a very welcome move.”

The event, which will be the final time British gymnasts compete on home soil before the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in August, will feature such names as Max Whitlock (pictured), Louis Smith, Claudia Fragapane and Kelly Simm.
