Tunney Ready To 'Get Back Out There Again'
(6 votes, average 4.67 out of 5)

British Olympian Rebecca Tunney told IG that, following injuries which have kept her out of action until recently, she is eager to test herself on two apparatuses at this weekend’s Challenge Cup of Osijek, Croatia.

“With not being in competition for a while it's a great experience to get back out there competing again,” said Tunney, the youngest member of the British delegation at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. “It will get me back into the competition environment and prepare me for the rest of the year.”

Tunney said she looks forward to competing on balance beam and floor exercise in Osijek. She said she will not compete on vault and uneven bars because she is not quite ready.

“My main focus is just to get back out competing again and gain the experience of performing under pressure, as I haven't been able to experience that feeling in a while,” she said.

Looking ahead to next month’s world championships in Glasgow, Tunney said she is gradually regaining her all-around form.

“At the moment I am pretty much ready with beam and floor,” she told IG. “Bars and vault are still a work in progress with getting all my skills back.”
