Gym­nasts shine in Gold Sil­ver Bronze

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
