Pipers Vale Gymnastics Club is the chosen venue for the qualifying competition of the European Youth Olympics.

Three teams from Brazil will be competing, as part of a 2012 legacy project being run by the gymnastics centre.

They will be joining 11 teams from across Great Britain – and among them will be two rising stars from Ipswich, Chloe Wood and Stevie Harrow.

It will be the second time in nearly a year that the club has hosted a team from the country after the full Brazil gymnastic team, which gained a gold in artistic gymnastics in 2012, trained there in July.

After the Olympics, all of the pre-games training camps were asked to use the visits of the national teams to set up legacy projects.

The Brazilian team will arrive on June 1 and train at Pipers Vale Gymnastics Centre up until the competition on June 8.
