Previously unpublished: Dan’s thoughts on Louis Smith on Strictly

We’ve been looking back at what Dan told the Northamptonshire Telegraph in December, before it was published in the New Year.

He certainly had a hunch that Louis Smith would do well on Strictly Come Dancing! Here’s what he told the Northamptonshire Telegraph:

"Louis is good! He’s always been good at dancing – I know that because I’ve grown up with him. He’s doing really well. It’s great news for gymnastics too, as it wasn’t recognised years ago but now Louis is being rewarded. 

"I’m not sure that I would go on Strictly myself, I wouldn’t do as well as Louis!"
Check back in a few weeks for new Q&As from Dan’s interview.

In the meantime, you can look forward to Dan’s video blog for Opus Energy Challenge next week, when he’ll report on the English Championships, which are being held this weekend. Good luck Dan!

Good news for Dan Keatings and Louis Smith

In Dan's latest blog for Opus Energy, he chats about why his club – which he trains at with Louis Smith – is celebrating this week. Here's a snippet:

After launching an ambitious £650,000 expansion plan three years ago, my gymnastics club in Huntingdon received some fantastic news last week: it was announced that the Olympic Legacy Fund was donating almost £50,000 towards our goal of building a new gym. With pledges for more than half of the money already secured, the donation from the Olympic Legacy Fund is a massive endorsement to what our club has achieved over the last two Olympic cycles, and in our commitment to providing Gymnastics For All.
