Team England have confirmed the selection of Lucy Stanhope in the women’s artistic gymnastics for the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.  Stanhope, who is from Warrington, replaces Claudia Fragapane who was forced to withdraw with injury earlier this month. 

Speaking about her selection Lucy Stanhope said: 

“It feels amazing - I’m so excited to be competing for Team England. I’m also really proud of myself and just so happy to be involved in such a big event."

"I was dreaming about being selected and thought I was thereabouts and now it’s real it feels incredible. I’m really excited to go to Australia, to wear the Team England kit and to compete. 

"I competed at the European Youth Olympics in 2015 and junior European Championships in 2016 but this is another level. I think I’m going to be really nervous but really excited once I walk out in to the arena.”
