Rising Gymnast Star Reiss Beckford Teams up with Firstaid4sport
Leading online supplier of sports injury products Firstaid4sport have teamed up with international gymnast, 19 year old Reiss Beckford to offer their support as he aims for Olympic success.
Reiss’s career in gymnastics started when his talent was spotted by a coach at a young age. After years of commitment and training, at the age of 16 Reiss made the decision to train full time in order to compete both in the UK and internationally. Since then Reiss has become a rising star of gymnastics, being selected to represent Britain in a number of international events including the Olympic Hopes Competition, International Japan Juniors Competition and the U18 4-Way International Event. Most recently, Reiss took part in the 2010 Commonwealth Games representing Britain from which he took home 3 silver medals. Reiss’ other great achievements include being awarded The Young Sportsperson of the Year 2009 and The BBC East Young Sports Personality 2010. When Reiss isn’t busy winning medals and receiving awards, he spends the majority of his time training at the Essex Gymnastics Club in Basildon and often in international training camps.
Michael Davison, Managing Director of Firstaid4sport says “As Reiss’s supplier of tape and chalk, we saw the opportunity to work with him to give him the support he needs to progress in his gymnastics. We are so excited to be working with Reiss and we offer him the utmost support as he trains for his upcoming events. We are very proud of Reiss’s progress over the past few months and we believe that with his ability and ambition, he is destined for great things!”.
