Gymnast's profile - Thomas Neuteleers

Thomas Neuteleers started gymnastics at age 6. He quickly climbed the levels and had a great career among the Junior ranks. He went to the European Youth Olympic Festival in Tampere (Finland) in 2009 where he won a silver medal on parallel bars. Earlier in the same year, he became the Belgian all-around champion. he also won several medals at international meets. 

2010 is a very important year in Thomas's career. He started the year in the Junior ranks. He went to the European Junior Championships in Birmingham where he had great results: 6th in the all-around, 6th with the team and 5th in the floor exercise final. After Birmingham, Neuteleers represented Belgium at the first edition of the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore where he qualified for three finals (all-around, parallel bars and floor exercise).

Still in 2010, he turned Senior after the Youth Olympic Games and will participate in his very first World Championships in Rotterdam.
Between 2011 and 2014, he will regularly make the team and represent Belgium at Worlds and European Championships. In 2014, he also became National champion. 

This year, a shoulder surgery kept him from competing at national meets. 

Let's hope he will be ready in time for the 2015 World Championships in Glasgow!
