URMSTON Grammar schoolgirl Liza Breykina has helped her gymnastics team to glory in Greece.

The teenager competed for the Ribby Hall team and represented Great Britain in the Irini Cup 2019 international gymnastics competition and went on to win the tournament.

As the best junior (under-15) team in the country, the Ribby Hall group travelled to Chalkida and put in the performances of their lives to clinch the trophy for their rhythmic gymnastics routine.

Liza trains three hours a day, six days a week and step that up with camps at Lilleshall National Sports Centre where they stay for four days, putting in eight hours of training each day they are there.

But all the hard work paid off for her and her team-mates.

When asked if she became nervous ahead of competing at such big competitions, Liza said: "No, I've been competing since I was five, so I'm used to it."

She's actually more likely to be nervous during training, as mistakes typically happen during the early stages of rehearsing a routine.

By the time they are ready to compete, all rough spots have been ironed out and the thought of making an error does not even occur to her.

While appearing to take all this in her stride, Liza is clearly proud of her team's achievement, adding: "It has been an honour to represent the country."
