From Bhaktivedanta Manor Newsletter

Eleven year old Orissa Kelly, who attended Bhaktivedanta Manor’s nursery and gurukula, has won a myriad of gold, silver and bronze medals and cups in gymnastics. Orissa started gymnastic training at the age of 3 and has competed since the age of 5. On 21st July this year she flew out to Malta to complete in the International Junior Gymstars Competition.

Representing Great Britain, she won the Gold medal to become the European under 12’s all round champion in the women’s artistic competition. Competing with gymnasts from 34 European countries, Orissa was also the overall winner. The next day Orissa continued her triumphs by winning in the individual pieces which included gold medals on floor and vault, and silver medals on beam and bars.

She took home a grand total of five medals for Great Britain! Now she has her sights set on the London Olympics in 2012, where she hopes to ‘get Gold for Krishna’.

My wife and I were both proud to see a young champion gymnast wearing Vaishnava tilok. Good work Orissa, and may you always remember Krishna!
