Sportsafe UK Gymnastics Ambassador Alice Kinsella has thrown her support behind getting children active this summer by launching Blue Peter’s new Sport Badge.

The gold medal winner launched the legendary children’s show’s challenge on TV at their studios, asking for youngsters to take part in trying one new sport for an hour this summer.

Alice, who performs spins, leaps and somersaults on the SPIETH Gymnastics beam, is hoping to encourage children to get active and enjoy a new sport.

It has been a busy year for Alice with her becoming European beam champion at the European Championships in Poland in April.

It is the second gold medal in as many years for the youngster, with her taking home the ultimate accolade at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia.

A limited edition, youngsters only have until September 30th to apply for their very own Blue Peter Sport Badge.
