THREE Sapphire gymnasts have been chosen to represent the country in recognition of their terrific competition results over the past year.

Gabby Jupp, Imogen Davies and Danielle Hubbard have all been selected for the Great Britain squad for the 2011/2012 season.

Gabby was second overall in the British Championships and second on the beam at the European Youth Olympic Festival in Turkey.

Danielle and Imogen, meanwhile, are both placed in the top 10 of their age group.

With Teal Grindle already in the under-12 GB squad, Sapphire now have four gymnasts competing at the highest level.

All four will attend regular national training sessions at Lilleshall National Sports Centre as well as travelling to overseas training camps.

They will receive UK Sport-funded training grants and specialist services to assist their development.
