Lunn welcomes announcement of Chinese gymnasts to train in Lisburn ahead of Olympics

Alliance Lagan Valley MLA Trevor Lunn welcomed the announcement that the Chinese artistic gymnast team will train at the Salto National Gymnastic Centre in Lisburn ahead of the 2012 London Olympics. They are the second team to decide to make Northern Ireland their base ahead of the Olympic Games.

Trevor Lunn MLA said: “This is great news that a second Olympic team has decided to train in Northern Ireland ahead of the Games. Hopefully we will see more international sport stars train here. I hope that this announcement will inspire local children to one day be Olympic stars themselves.

“It is great news for Lisburn both in terms of the money that it will put into the local economy and by the relations that it will create with China.

” I have no doubt that local people will show our renowned hospitality to these athletes and make them feel at home.”
