How long have you been in­volved in gym­nas­tics? For two years. How did you get in­volved? I tried play­ing soc­cer and dancing first and then de­cided I would like to try gym­nas­tics. It’s my favourite sport. Why do you love it? It helps me get stronger and I get to make new friends. What would be your favourite ex­er­cise? I LOVE the bars. Have you had any in­juries? Just a few blis­ters from the bars and the rope. What is your most mem­o­rable mo­ment in gym­nas­tics? Go­ing to my first team com­pe­ti­tion last year in Cairns. Our team won a bronze medal. Who is your favourite per­son in the club? Char­lotte, she re­ally is nice. Big­gest com­pe­ti­tion so far? The Christ­mas com­pe­ti­tion last year in Ather­ton. It was my first in­di­vid­ual com­pe­ti­tion. Gym­nas­tics as­pi­ra­tions? Have fun and im­prove so I can do things like hand­stands on the beam. Favourite Olympic gym­nast? Not sure. How of­ten do you train? I train two days a week for two hours each time. What is the hard­est part of gym­nas­tics? Do­ing cater­pil­lars on the beam and re­mem­ber­ing rou­tines at com­pe­ti­tions.
