The Irish Senior Men’s Gymnastics team have secured qualification for the 2015 European Games in Baku with a strong performance at the European

Championships in Sofia.

The team, including 2012 Olympian and multiple World-Cup medallists Kieran Behan, posted an impressive score of 239.225 to place 17thin Europe.

This adds to the successful showing by the Irish Junior & Senior Women last week in Sofia where the Irish Senior Women also secured qualification for the 2015 European Games. This was in addition to a standout performance by Irish junior Casey Bell who made history by becoming Ireland’s first female gymnast to qualify for the European All-Around final, breaking into Europe’s elite.
