YOG International Gymnastics “teams”

Grace Chui found the document which details which Youth Olympic Games athletes have been placed into what combined teams.

A bit of fun. A LOT of confusion, in my opinion.

Hopefully it will help bring a little more attention to the non-Olympic disciplines.

Here’s team Oksana CHUSOVITINA for example:

Acrobatic
AKHOTNIKAVA Viktoryia BLR
FAMENKOU Ilya BLR

Artistic – Men
BRIONES Brandon USA
TOBIN Adam GBR
AFIFY Mohamed EGY

Welsh gymnast Lucy Ellis has died

Only 16-years-old. A tragedy.

Doctors diagnosed the teenager with sepsis – a condition triggered by an infection or injury that causes the body to attack tissues and organs – and warned the family that she was gravely unwell.

In a last-ditch attempt to save her, a team from the Royal Brompton Hospital in London were called in via helicopter with a specialist piece of equipment … – but it was too late.

Heartbroken dad who lost teen daughter to sepsis says it is ‘scandalous’ specialist machines aren’t available in Wales
