The first leaper is Zoe Lorenzin. She's also the girl doing a handstand on vault.

The blonde leaper is... I think Ade said it was Simone Williams?

Don't know who the leopard-print littlie is.

Were you impressed with the facility Mez?

I was indeed. Not having visited many elite gyms in my time (and having only ever visited the ground floor of the VWHPC) I found it very insightful.

Most people would think "oh, there's a bunch of beams and a bunch of bars and rah rah rah" but I for one thought the idea of multiple bars at different heights was great. As I said, one was a low bar over mats where they could practise circle work, one was a single bar over a pit where they could do releases and giants and then a proper uneven bars set to do the whole shebang.

There was a lot of protective equipment and padding on apparatus and a cool-looking tumble track and of course the enviable trampoline. The one thing that will stay with me was how light and warm it was in there. Sunlight streamed through window slats that from the outside appeared gentrified. It was a a far cry from the semi-darkened, semingly gloomy VIS gym I remember visiting years and years ago!
