How old is Gabby Logan?
Gabrielle “Gabby” Logan was born on April 24, 1973, in Leeds to former Welsh international footballer Terry Yorath and his wife Christine.
As a child, Gabby moved around a lot due to her dad’s career, which also sparked the now 48-year-old’s interest in football.
On May 11, 1985, Gabby was in the crowd at Valley Parade when the Bradford City fire happened.
She left the stand just moments before the flames took hold along with her brother and sister.
The disaster killed 56 and left at least 265 people injured.
Gabby inherited her dad’s athletic gene as she was good at netball and high jump at school but excelled at gymnastics.
She was a gymnast during her teen years and at her peak came in 11th place in rhythmic gymnastics while representing Wales at the 1990 Commonwealth Games in Auckland.
Despite showing much promise in the sport, she had to retire from gymnastics aged 17 due to sciatica.
