GOODBYE & GOOD LUCK

After 34 years at Rochdale Olympic Gymnastics Club, in May, 2017, Graham Latimer retired from his active duties coaching at the Club, and went off to begin his retirement.  Graham wished it to be known to all members, past and present, that the Club has been a big part of his family.  He made many friends and thanked everybody for the shared memories and experiences he had during his 34 years at Rochdale Olympic Gymnastics Club.  We sent Graham off into the sunset with a party, and lots of goodies.  We may still see him around on the judging circuit, as he has expressed a wish to continue this for a while, but in the meantime we wish him the best of luck for his retirement.

At the end of December, 2016., after a long 10 years with Rochdale Olympic Gymnastics Club, Grace Pauline decided to finally hang her guards up for good! Grace Pauline has had her thrills and spills over the years and kept us entertained in more ways than you can imagine!!! However, she has been a pleasure to coach and to have as part of the club for the whole 10 years she has been with us. She is definitely heading for University next September and all at the club wish her the very best with everything she pursues in the future.
