Gymnasts shine in Gold Silver Bronze
THE Mossman and District Gymnastics Club were once again invited to the Mareeba Gymnastics Club for their ’Gold Silver Bronze’ competition on Saturday to wrap up the two clubs’ association for 2010.
In Mareeba’s state-of-the-art venue, a group of our local female gymnasts enjoyed displaying their skills, with several of them performing new routines after being promoted to the next level since their earlier competitions in the year.
Head coach Sonja Zettl said that their main aim was to have fun.
“It was a no pressure competition with the main aim of having fun and building selfconfidence,” she said.
The local gymnasts thrived in the friendly environment with most of them bringing home Silver awards.
“It was also an excellent opportunity for three newcomers on the Mossman team to get a feel of competing for the first time in a more relaxed atmosphere,” she said.
New to the team, both Fallon Spanton and Olivia Dollard received Silver awards, with Lani Davies putting on a brave performance and winning Bronze.
Out of the regular competition gymnasts, Elona Carr-Walker, Jasmin Kirk, Della Miller, Sophie Kirk, Chloe Matthews, Michelle Batemberski, Eva Mellows, Shayla Frizelle and Taylor O’Connor all received Silver awards, with Paulina Bernhardi and Matilda Mellows receiving Bronze.
The Mossman gym club is now gearing up for its end of year Christmas display. Doors will be open at 6pm on Friday, November 26, with all members of the public invited to attend this free event.
It is not too late for those wishing to try out the sport of gymnastics to enrol with the club and join in the fun. For new enrolments, please call the gym on 0417 702 534 or email info@ mossmangymnastics.com.
