NATHAN BAILEY SECURES TEAM GB REPRESENTATION IN MENS TRAMPOLINE EVENT IN RIO 2016 OLYMPICS

OLGA’s Nathan Bailey put in a superb qualification performance under immense pressure at the Rio Test Event to secure Britain a male trampoline place at the 2016 Olympic Games.

With the Test Event being the final chance for gymnasts to claim places for their nations at the Games, Nathan kept his nerve to score a total of 104.695 points for his two qualification routines to secure not only a place in the final but also our first men’s trampoline Olympic place since Athens 2004.

Nathan was delighted to have ensured Team GB a place saying: “I’m really, really happy! It’s been my aim for the last four years and qualifying the spot for team GB just means the world to me. There is going to be a trial process now so hopefully I can secure the spot in my name. I’m feeling really confident this year after putting up a good result at the European Championships, getting bronze. That kind of set me up for the Test Event in a good spirit and it’s just carrying on so hopefully in the next couple of competitions I can carry that on and you might see me back here in Brazil for the Olympic Games !”

Nathan, who trains at OLGA club in Poole, went on to place 4th in the final scoring 57.605 points.

The result means that Britain will be represented by full men’s and women’s artistic gymnastics teams (5 gymnasts per team), two female trampoline gymnasts and one male trampoline gymnast at Rio 2016. The selection process now continues with the names for all teams being announced on July 12th.
