MORE than five years ago, cal­is­then­ics duo Chelsea Humphreys and Lucy Samin placed fifth at the Na­tional Cal­is­then­ics Cham­pi­onships.

Ever since, the girls were fo­cussed of again get­ting to the same level.

Chelsea’s mum and Pres­i­dent of Qld Cal­is­then­ics Michelle Humphreys said it isn’t of­ten Queens­land girls place in the top five due to the strong com­pe­ti­tion from other states.

“Both girls rep­re­sented their state in their team as well and showed great tenac­ity to ac­com­plish their dreams to repli­cate their place at the na­tion­als,” she said.

“They were the only ones from our 21-strong group of rep­re­sen­ta­tives to place this year.

“This was an ac­com­plish­ment that is a high­light in their cal­is­then­ics ca­reer for the sec­ond time: a feat not re­peated in Queens­land cal­is­then­ics his­tory.”

Both girls hope to con­tinue grow­ing as strong com­peti­tors.

Fif­teen-year-old Chelsea Humphreys said they were ea­ger achieve what they did last time.

“We trained for so long so when you place like this it’s re­ally good,” she said.
