Gallagher all set for World Championships
7:00am Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in Sport
BRIDGWATER trampolinist Laura Gallagher, 23, is aiming to improve upon last year's eleventh place World Championship finish when she travels to Bulgaria with the Great Britain team to compete in this year's competition.
Laura was 0.1 from reaching the final of last year's event and she says she is fit and ready to go when the squad fly out to Sofia next week. She said: “I finished fifth at the World Cup which I was pleased with considering I spent eight months out injured. I didn't even think I'd make the squad because the Great Britain team is obviously very strong, but I was really pleased with how that ended up.
“I'm fully over the injury now and it just needs to be managed, but I feel good and I'm looking forward to it.
“My aim is to get into the final which would be an improvement on last time.”
Laura finished fifth at the World Cup in Denmark earlier this month after coming back from a long-term knee injury.
