Spelbound win Britain's Got Talent final


June 07, 2010

BRITAIN'S Got Talent winners Spelbound washed off their body paint, then vowed to go for gold again at the Olympics.

The group of 13 gymnasts and acrobats from Spelthorne, Runnymede and Elmbridge - who train at Brooklands College - won the prize of £100,000 and a slot at the Royal Variety Performance later this year.

They leapt to success in Saturday night's live final, watched by 15 million viewers, beating Twist & Pulse and Kieran Gaffney into second and third place.

And afterwards they revealed how they hoped the show could provide a springboard to Olympic success in 2016, and that they had already received offers to perform in Las Vegas.

Spelbound's brand of acrobatic gymnastics will not be recognised at the London 2012 Olympics, but asked whether they would like it to be considered in the wake of their achievements, 25-year-old gymnastics coach Alex Uttley said: "Yes definitely, the recognition for the sport has now increased dramatically from what it would have done.

"If it could get into the Olympics - what better achievement for us?

"We are going to the World Championships and European Championships but that's as far as it goes for us.

"To be considered to be in the Olympics would be out of this world. It would be one of the best things that could happen to us."
