Holly Devall (Dragon's Academy) has been selected as part of 10 strong Team GB squad to compete at the European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) taking place in Banská Bystrica, Slovakia from 24 to 30 July.
Banská Bystrica 2022 will see around 3,500 athletes and officials represent 48 European nations across 10 Olympic sports. Team GB’s athletes, who will all be aged 13-18 at the event, will compete in five sports: badminton, cycling, gymnastics, judo, and swimming. Athletics, basketball, handball, tennis, and volleyball complete the sporting programme.
EYOFs play an important role in the development of young British athletes, providing crucial multi-sport event experience and guiding them towards realising their Olympic ambitions, with many athletes who have competed for Team GB at a summer EYOF have gone on to compete at an Olympic Games.
All at Welsh Judo wish to congratulation Holly on this fantastic achievement. Find the full team here.
