QUAYSIDE trampolinist Corey Walkes has been selected to represent Great Britain in the 2019 European Games which will be held in Minsk, Belarus, later this month.

Walkes, 18, is the only male selected to represent Great Britain in the trampoline event.

Minsk 2019 is the second iteration of the European Games and will be held in the Belarussian capital from June 21-30.

More than 4,000 athletes from 50 countries will compete across 10 days in 200 different medal events.

Quayside’s head coach Sue Bramble said: “We are very proud of Corey’s selection.

“It will be a great opportunity to experience such a big multi-sport event at this time in his sporting career.”

Corey’s selection has meant that both Quayside’s international performers will now have competed in this event.

Laura Gallagher competed in the inaugural European Games, held in 2015 in Baku.
