the 3rd Scottish Dan

It won’t be difficult to remember the name of Daniel Iley, the Edinburgh-born gymnast.

He’s hoping to qualify to the Commonwealth Games Team competing in Scotland this summer.

He admits that things can get confusing on the Daniel front. “Dan Purvis is ‘Danny P’ and Dan Keatings we refer to as ‘Keatings’. I’m ‘Apples,'” said Iley.

With Purvis, Keatings and Baines in stellar form, it is his belief that everyone else is realistically battling it out for two spots. “I do feel sorry for whoever has to make that decision because it’s going to be tough one,” said Iley. “We have three guys who are among the best in the world and they are going to be the core of the team.

“Then there are six or seven of us fighting for those two remaining places. …

Same name, same talent shown by the third Dan

They’ll be looking for a few BIG scores to bolster Purvis, Keatings and Baines. No doubt
