JLA Supporting the Legacy


Having been inspired like most of the nation by last years Olympic Games, JLA have identified with the message that has evolved, which is ‘the games are about The Legacy they create’.

Over recent months, we have explored various avenues in which we could help support the legacy, and following discussions with members of the London Region of British Gymnastics, JLA are honoured to now be confirmed as the sole sponsor of this years Men’s Gymnastic London Open event.

To give a little background this competition recently celebrated 100 years in existence, and is one of the oldest competitions in the Men’s Artistic Gymnastics National calendar. The event is run over three day’s and features competitions for elite U 8 to U 16 national gymnasts, and culminates with the senior competition featuring many of the Olympians from last year, such as Max Whitlock and Kristian Thomas who are already confirmed, as well as other national squad members aiming for qualification for next years Commonwealth Games.

We genuinely believe this event provides the opportunity to support a sport that is clearly on the rise and embodies many of the values that we as a business encompass, such as hard work, dedication, commitment and dynamism.

We are very proud to be playing our part in supporting the legacy and trust in some way that you can join us and help support it too.
