Where did it all begin?

Where did it all begin? | British Gymnastics | Scoop.it

I never knew that trampolining may have started from eskimos using walrus skins to throw each other in the air! How strange?!

 

But the first actual trampoline was invented in 1934 by George Nissen and Larry Griswold.

Want to make £££ from the Olympics?

Want to make £££ from the Olympics? | British Gymnastics | Scoop.it

Do you live in London and have a spare room?

If you rent your room out during the olympic period you could be earning £53 a night! That could be a tidy sum of £848 if you were to rent for the whole 16 days.

And if you fancy renting your entire house, well you could be looking at on average £4,500!

 

Of course you will need to check all the legal details e.g. insurance, so click on the photo for more details.
