“We qualified the place for Great Britain back in October 2012 and have had to recently trial against other synchronised pairings in order to secure our right to compete. It is a huge honour to be selected for such a prestigious event and as both of us were involved in the Olympics as competitor and reserve it makes it even more special to be a representative in what is almost as high a profile as the Olympics.”
The 2013 World Games takes place in Cali, Columbia from Thursday 25 July until Sunday 4 August and is often known as the Olympics for non-Olympic sports. The games are expected to feature over 3000 athletes across 38 sports ranging from squash to orienteering to synchronised trampolining. Watch this space for our World Games progress.
