International Handstand Day
It’s International Handstand Day today and we’re getting involved by celebrating gymnastics!
We are joining in the fun alongside British Gymnastics and BBC Get Inspired, to encourage more people to discover gymnastics and to celebrate the fact that the World Gymnastics Championships are taking place in Glasgow 23 October – 1 November. Just over a year on from the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, it will be fantastic to have more than 500 of the World’s best Gymnasts back in the UK for 10 days of top-class competition.
A range of celebrities and famous gymnasts will be taking part in International Handstand Day, but we want everyone to send us their handstands to help celebrate the day.
Use #IHD2015 and #2015WGC to send us your picture or video on twitter and keep your eye out on our Facebook page for some very special handstands.
Even BBC Breakfast Presenter Mike Bushell is getting involved. He has had a lesson on how to perform the perfect handstand with British Gymnastics own Beth Tweddle, who is also proud to be a 2015 World Championships Ambassador. You can view the video here.
