Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

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.
