Hi, Nick Ruddock here.
If we haven't had the pleasure of connecting, and you're sitting there thinking, "Who is this Nick Ruddock character?", then here's the key blurb:
I'm a gymnastics coach and consultant, and in the last 15 years I've worked closely with coaches and athletes all over the world, in a number of different roles, including assistant, personal and national coaching positions, working with some of the worlds most successful gymnasts.
In fact, I was the first ever national coach for Great Britain's juniors, and I worked closely with Amy Tinkler for a number of years as she ascended through the ranks and clinched the title of British Champion in 2015, as well as a World Medal.
And after that vital formative period, I made the decision to start my own consultancy.
