A talented Bury gymnast has been selected as part of the British Gymnastics Elite Performance Programme.

Thirteen-year-old Jack Chamberlain, who attends Elton High School, trains for up to 25 hours a week at Bury Gymnastics Club under the watchful eye of his coach, Paul Hockwart junior.

His delighted dad, Tim Chamberlain, said: “We are very proud that once again Jack has been selected for the Great Britain squad for a fourth year.”

Jack, pictured, who competed in his first international event for the GB squad in 2012, has trained with Hockwart for five years.
