PRLog - Apr. 16, 2010 - Zoe Parker, aged 8, won the training session with Gymnastics World Championship silver medallist, Daniel Keatings, plus four tickets to the European Gymnastic Championships, after entering the competition run by business energy supplier, Opus Energy.  
Competition winner, Zoe Parker commented:

“I am so excited about my training session with Daniel and I get to see him compete at the European Championships too.  He is a very good gymnast and I hope I can learn some new techniques from him to help with my gymnastics.”

The competition was launched by Opus Energy, to offer young gymnasts the opportunity meet a local gymnastics’ hero and to experience the world of European gymnastics first hand.  

Zoe’s Senior coach, Marie Mitchell from Kettering Olympic Gymnastics Club, said:

“We are delighted that Opus Energy has created this fantastic opportunity that will inspire young gymnasts to excel in the sport. The club is thrilled at having an Olympic standard gymnast, such as Daniel run a training session with Zoe.”

Daniel is showing huge potential for the 2012 Olympics having already won Britain’s first ever medal at the men’s All Around event at the 2009 World Championships.

Despite suffering from two dislocated fingers after falling in a training routine, Daniel has been confirmed to represent Great Britain at the European Championships and is confident about team GB’s performance;

“The preparations for the Europeans have been tough. The whole team has been working really hard and hopefully we will get a place on the podium for the first time as a team at a major championship,” says Daniel.  

He adds, “I am looking forward to meeting Zoe.  It’s good to know I can help young gymnasts, through opportunities such as these, to achieve their aspirations to become a professional athlete.”

Opus Energy is committed to working within the Northampton community and supports many local initiatives, including, a pledge to raise £10,000 for the Friends of Cynthia Spencer Hospice.
