Gym­nasts im­pres­sive

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Moss­man and District Gym­nas­tics Club put on an im­pres­sive per­for­mance at the Ma­reeba gym club’s an­nual Lev­els Test and In­vi­ta­tional com­pe­ti­tion re­cently.

Rep­re­sent­ing the boys was Joshua Bellero with his knock­out per­for­mance, which put him in third place over­all out of 13 boys. Fur­ther prov­ing his ex­cep­tional skills he was able to bring home a medal for first place on the rings.

And fly­ing on the par­al­lel bars he was third, fol­lowed by fourth on floor and fifth on high bar.

Tali Hoye and Jorja Har­vey, the club’s youngest gym­nasts, were sev­enth and eighth re­spec­tively from the WAG Level 2 group.

Tali showed-off her ex­cep­tional skills plac­ing fourth on the beam and sixth on the bars. Jorja also shone on the bars and was placed fifth.

From WAG Level 3, in the Un­der 8s, Olivia Dol­lard ranked eighth over­all, ex­celling on the beam in fourth place. Shayla Frizelle ranked 10th over­all.

Beam and floor were her forte, win­ning sixth place for both.

From WAG Level 3 overs, Paulina Bern­hardi per­formed her usual best, plac­ing sev­enth over­all out of 31 girls, with a stand-out per­for­mance on the beam in sec­ond place and fifth on the floor.

Tay­lor O’Con­nor worked hard against the tough com­pe­ti­tion plac­ing 26th over­all, with the floor be­ing her strong point, fol­lowed closely by new­comer Jac­inta Frizelle in 31st place, whose strength was on the beam.

Young Bridget Oster­manRowan and Hay­ley Gwynne, who have both moved up the ranks in the Moss­man club over the years, had their first op­por­tu­nity to judge at the com­pe­ti­tion with Bridget also tak­ing on the role of sup­port coach.

More than 200 girls and boys from eight clubs par­tic­i­pated in the event. A high stan­dard was dis­played from all the clubs in­volved, how­ever, the lo­cal gym­nasts have con­tin­u­ously shown pro­fi­ciency on all pieces of ap­pa­ra­tus and con­sis­tently per­form well at these In­vi­ta­tional events.

Some of these gym­nasts will now be pre­par­ing for an­other big show in Townsville next month. New en­rol­ments are wel­come.
