WEST international high jumper Tom Gale flies out to Tenerife tomorrow (FRIDAY DEC 8th) for a pre-Christmas training camp in the sun.
The eight-day trip with coach Denis Doyle is the first of two training camps in Gale’s schedule to the Canary Islands before he tackles the indoor season and then makes his senior international debut for England at the Commonwealth Games in Brisbane in early April.
“I am going out to Tenerife next week with Denis and Joel Khan (his junior rival and GB team-mate) and also for a week in January as well,” said Gale who is a member of Bristol & West AC’s British League squad.
“This first camp will focus on sharpening and strengthening work while the January one will be working on technical aspects and getting into shape for the indoor season on my return when initially I will be staying in Europe to compete in Cologne and the Czech Republic.
“It is a great opportunity for me to spend some time with Denis (who is based in Cardiff) and have some really good training sessions with him on hand.
“It should be a good couple of weeks.”
