DANIEL AND TEAM GB REWRITE THE HISTORY BOOKS - At the European championships in Birmingham, Team GB - Daniel Keatings, Louis Smith, Kristain Thomas, Daniel Purvis and Sam Hunter won Britains first ever Team Medal by claiming Silver on the podium behind Germany who took the Gold.

13/03/10 London Open.
World All-around Silver medallist Daniel Keatings (Huntingdon) took the prestigious Westminster Trophy and the overall victory at the 2010 London Open held over the weekend 13/14th March.

Dan's huge score of 90.500 took him clear of second placed Daniel Purvis (Southport YMCA) with Kristian Thomas (Earls) in third.

06/03/10 American Cup - Worcester, Massachusettes.
Daniel finished 5th in his first competition of 2010, up against a strong field Daniel started nervously on his first apparatus and stepped out of the floor area just as he did in the World Championships, he then had an uncharacteristic fall on the pommel horse that left him chasing the field on the other four apparatus. The rest of the competition went well for Daniel but he was always chasing the leading pack and the difference after the first two apparatus was just to large to claw back.

Daniel will be back in action at the London Open on March 13th.

Watch out for Daniel when he appears on the BBC Question of Sport on Friday 4th December.

A big thank you has to go to  OPUS ENERGY who also backed Daniel’s challenge and donated £1000 to the Children in Need.
