My #athleteoftheday once said on Twitter: ""The potential within you is limitless." Meet Lucie Colebeck (@luciecolebeck), a competitive gymnast from Great Britain! In 2015, she won a silver medal at the 2015 World Championships in Odense, Denmark. but most recently, she became the 2018 EUROPEAN TUMBLING CHAMPION!! Lucie is about a strong as they come!
What she's been up to:
"The start of the year I went to Baku to compete at the European championships in which went very well. We came first as a team and I was crowned individual European champion for the second time in my career which was an immense feeling."
What she's currently working on:
"I’m currently in the process of training for the British championships that take place later this month. In order to stay motivated I think focus on lots of little aspects of my training."
In addition, Lucie takes time out of her busy schedule to train young gymnasts! "I currently work in schools coaching the younger students Gymnastics. For me, this is something I enjoy so much, inspiring the next generation. It’s always fun seeing them learn something they didn’t think they were able to do."
Lucie has a lot to look forward to!:
"There’s always something to work on and improve and that’s something I love, a new challenge!" She says. "I’m excited for my new chapter, I have some exciting things coming my way and fingers crossed it’ll be awesome!"
Advice for young athletes:
"My main advice to people is to remember that the potential within you is limitless. It’s your body and what you do with it is in your control! Enjoy the journey whether I’d be easy or hard! Gymnastics is a beautiful sport!"
