Gymnasts from a Colwyn Bay club are preparing to show off their talents on an international stage for the first time ever.

Grays Gymnastics Club is sending a team of 15 to the Malta Gymstars International competition, which will run from June 30 to July 1.

She said: “It’s a great opportunity for the girls to compete abroad and compete alongside clubs from as far as South Africa.

“We are all really excited and are looking forward to the experience.”
