Josh Newman has been selected to represent Great Britain at the European Trampoline Championships in Valladolid, Spain at the end of the month.

The 17-year-old will be competing in the Individual and Synchro events – with Rhys Northover, as well as in the team event with three other team mates.

Josh said: “I went to the European trial last weekend with a slight knee injury so was thrilled to have been selected for GB and am really looking forward to the competition.

“I have a GB training camp next weekend, followed by a four-day training camp a week before we leave for Spain. I’m always confident in my ability and on my best form, believe I can win a medal in the individual and synchro, and hopefully as a team. I will do my best and hope my form is good enough to win medals. I’m unbeaten for 16 months in all competitions, this is a higher level, but I can do it.”
