EUAN COURTNEY made it a gymnastics hat-trick at the south west regional grading competition.

Courtney,13, who competes for the Welsh national gymnastics squad, captured gold in Barnstaple last month.

Euan will now head to the national grading competition in Birmingham in November, where he came third last year and was awarded a place on a four-day training camp, with national coaches at the national Sports Centre, Lillieshall, Shropshire. He is hoping to win a place again this year.

Euan's club, Fromeside Gymnastics Club, Winterbourne, Bristol, badly needs a new floor. A fundraising campaign is just about to be launched. The floor will cost around £50,000. Anyone willing to contribute an any way please contact Fromeside Gymnastics club on 01454 776873 or by emailing
