Gymnast Eamon Montgomery says he'd be heartbroken if he does not compete in the Commonwealth Games.

After missing out on two major events during the coronavirus pandemic, Eamon Montgomery sat down at the start of the season and wrote down his biggest goal - compete for Northern Ireland at the Commonwealth Games.

The 19-year-old from Poleglass was devastated to miss out on back-to-back under-age European Championships due to the global situation, but was fully understanding of the reason. So when he was told he would be going to Birmingham in July to represent Northern Ireland, it was one of the happiest days of his life to see not just a year’s work, but several years’ work rewarded.
