The funds that will be raised will go towards Naana Oppon who is a young British girl who is full of determination and motivation to become one of the best tumblers the world has ever seen. Naana started her journey at only five years old training hard three days a week just so she could learn all the skills that her coach Mikey had to offer her so she could be one of the best in the world . Naana got where she is today because she never gave up on dreaming big and knew the only way in achieving these dreams, she had to work hard every gym sessions. As soon as her coach saw that she was a determined young girl her hours started going up for training which made the gym her second home at such a young age.
In 2015 at the British Trampoline & Tumbling Championship, Naana Oppon was the youngest girl in the her category at just 8 years old, when it came to her runs she did not hold back at all and gave it nothing but the best, where she ran two outstanding runs that got the crowd shouting. These two runs made her top spot heading to the final rounds of the competition. Naana would perform skills far passed everyone of her age group and even many passed her age, by being so determined to do and be better naana has proved to many other tumblers that she does not go to competition to play any games.
Naana has inspired so many young girls and even boys that are training in her home gym, she has got many kids to realise that being a hard worker pays off and that there's no limits, all you have to do is be consistent because consistency is the KEY to achieve anything. At such a young age she had to learn that the biggest difference between successful people and unsuccessful people isn't intelligence or opportunity or resources but It's the belief that they can make their goals an reality.
