MANSFIELD gymnast Amy Tivey (nine) has flown to America to train for eight days in a first class facility in Pennsylvania.
She was invited to join the Sanbach gymnastic squad in their training programme at the last minute to help in her preparation for the National Compulsory Three Championships at Birmingham in May.
The Wynndale Primary School pupil flew out last Tuesday to Philadelphia and made the connecting flight to Baltimore.
Mum Angela said: “She will have been training twice a day for the week learning new moves and perfecting her routines for her forthcoming event.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Amy to grow and develop as a gymnast.”
