Ex-high level gymnast and coach, I firstly qualified in sports science which lead to me working in the field of biomechanics in analysing movement. I then found a passion for graphics and 3D animation and qualified in this field, it was combining these two passions that lead to the creation of our project 3D Gym.
Passionate about gymnastics and through these new numerical supports I want to make our discipline more attractive and accessible. I think that this new 3D technology is a way to increase the popularity of our sport, increase media coverage and put our sport at the place it deserves.
An ex-International gymnast who competed for Wales in mens artistic gymnastics. Kris graduated from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff with an Honours Degree in Sport and Physical Education.
After working in the sports industry and entertainment industry I trained in business and accountancy, and am now happy and proud to be CEO of FB Curves 3D Gym Ltd.
Kris was also part of the panel of experts for Welsh Gymnastics and their Commonwealth cycle for Birmingham 2022 and is currently on the Board of Directors & Hon. Treasurer for the Welsh Sports Hall of Fame.
Passionate about gymnastics I believe our project can help bring gymnastics into the new era, making it more attractive, understandable and desirable to anyone who is interested in this ever growing popular sport.
