News: Meghan tells us how col­lege is help­ing to sup­port her Olympic dreams.

Lev­el 2 sport stu­dent and gym­nast Meghan Pead tells us how her col­lege course is help­ing to sup­port her dreams of becom­ing an Olympic gymnast.

Ear­li­er this month Meghan flew to South Africa to take part in selec­tion tri­als with the aim of rep­re­sent­ing South Africa. Meghan, who has com­pet­ed in both inter­na­tion­al and nation­al com­pe­ti­tions, moved to the UK from South Africa to help pur­sue her Gym­nas­tic dreams. 

Along­side her course, Meghan coach­es at Robin Hood Gym­nas­tics club, allow­ing her to put the knowl­edge she has gained on her course, along with her exten­sive gym­nas­tic expe­ri­ence, into practice.

My favourite thing about my col­lege course is I get to study lots of areas that help with my gym­nas­tics, for exam­ple, anato­my and phys­i­ol­o­gy, psy­chol­o­gy, and nutri­tion. My goals are to progress to a lev­el 3 course and con­tin­ue my coach­ing career with Robin Hood Gym­nas­tics Club. My long-term goal is to become an Olympic champion.
