The Powerpuff Girls support British gymnasts

Published on: 19th March 2019

Costume characters attended the Liverpool M&S Bank Arena to celebrate the Pow! Academy at The British Gymnastics Championships.

An innovative joint venture between British Gymnastics and Cartoon Network, The Pow! Academy was set up in 2018 to inspire and reward thousands of gymnasts across the country with the help of The Powerpuff Girls – Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup.

Aimed at budding gymnasts aged 5-11yrs, The Pow! Academy challenges gymnasts to show off their talents and be proud of their achievements. By linking the skills they have learnt in their gymnastics sessions with eight exciting sequences, the Pow! Academy empowers gymnasts for the level ahead. Upon completion of each sequence, gymnasts can be rewarded with Pow! Academy badges and certificates.

Over the course of the four day event, children from the Beth Tweddle Gymnastics Academy performed Pow! Academy routines in the main arena while a presenter shot Pow! T-shirts out of a T-shirt cannon into the family-friendly crowd. The Powerpuff Girls costume characters also hosted fan meet & greets.

Co-branded Pow! Academy products including T-Shirts and hoodies were available to buy on-site; fans can also head online to personalise a range of Pow! Academy T-Shirts, hoodies and water bottles here.
