TWO Great Sankey High School girls from the same form are to make history on the world stage.

Fourteen-year-olds Lottie Cahill and Alexandra Marshall are in the team of seven that will become the first to represent Great Britain at the World Rhythmic Gymnastics Junior Championships which take place in Romania from this Saturday to Monday.

Cahill and Marshall, who train at Finesse Rhythmic Gymnastics Club in Widnes, joined forces with three members of the Fylde Coast Junior Group to compete in the European Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships in Azerbaijan in May.

There, the five girls completed clean routines and gained valuable experience which will stand them all in good stead for Romania.

Since the Europeans, the quintet won gold medals as part of England team A at the Home Nations in Cardiff and a few weeks ago completed a clean sweep of three golds (all around champions, five balls champions and five ropes champions) at the English Championships in Walsall.

The amount of training has been relentless as the five girls split their sessions between training at Finesse RGC and Fylde Coast RGC in Warton near Lytham, but have also been training at the National Sports Training Centre in Lilleshall with Great Britain head coach and former Great Sankey High School student Laura Hogg and Fylde Coast head coach Ana Blackburn.

They have been all conquering on home soil this season but will not be able to compete in the British Championships which are on the same weekend as the World Championships.

Rhythmic gymnastics in Great Britain is self funded, meaning parents have to pay for everything to represent GB, including official training kit, tracksuit, flights, hotels, food.
