Finally becoming an Olympian and living with Coeliac - Laura Gallagher, Team GB Trampoline Gymnast

Published on: 10th June, 2021

Laura Gallagher is a GB Trampoline Gymnast, an 8 times World and European medal winner and now a member of Team GB.

Laura gave a great interview in Episode 40 talking about giving up the sport five years ago, a crisis of confidence and never giving up. She promised to come back to tell us if she made the team. And I'm delighted to see we can celebrate!

Laura talks about what it means to her. The conversation's she's had with her mum over the last few days. And what's happening between now and July. She also talks about the effects of Coeliac's Disease and the adaptations she's made.

Congratulations Laura! And thanks to everyone for listening.

And what are they learning in the run up to the Games. The Podcast lasts around 10 mins and comes out daily, Monday to Friday. I’m also using it to raise money for Maggie’s Cancer Centres to thank them for the help they’ve given my wife and family during her bowel cancer journey.
