Olympic gymnast Jennifer Pinches and her boyfiend James McIlveen, both from Whaley Bridge, are hoping to strike gold with their new app.

They have designed a new iPhone and iPad game called Laser Chambers which they hope will help them stay together when Jennifer flies out to the University of California Los Angeles on a full athletics scholarship next month.

Jenni said: “Since the Olympics I’ve enjoyed taking on new challenges and creating Laser Chambers is one I jumped at the chance to do. I’d like to prove I have other skills besides gymnastics, and hope they will be able to see that, by playing Laser Chambers.”
