NAME: Paulina Bernhardi AGE: 12 CLUB: Mossman and District Gymnastics Club
HOW long have you been a gymnast? I think about five years now. I love it. Why did you join the Mossman and District Gymnastics Club?
Because I wanted to do a sport and I thought gymnastics was pretty cool, so I gave it a try.
What do you like most about gymnastics?
I like everything that I learn there and also all the people I have met. We have a good team. What is your favourite exercise? Probably the floor and tumbling. love doing flicks.
What is your least favourite or the hardest exercise for you?
The bars are quite hard for me and also the strength and flexibility because I’m not really very flexible with my legs. Tell us about your last competition? It was the first level four competition that Shayla and I had been in, we didn’t place but we had a lot of fun. All of the other competitors from other schools were really good. Any embarassing moments? I wasn’t very confident at my flicks. Everyone else knew how to do it. It was embarassing because I needed someone to stand next to me and help me, while no one else did. Why should others join gymnastics? Because it is a lot of fun. You become fit, strong and flexible and you also get to make a lot of friends from other schools.
What are your future aspirations for gymnastics?
I am hoping I can keep doing it through high school, but I will be going to Mareeba so I might not be able to make it to training sessions. I am still hoping we can make it work.
