Gym­nasts shine in the Bur­dekin

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

GYM­NAS­TICS: A num­ber of Whit­sun­day girls took part in their first ma­jor gym­nas­tics com­pe­ti­tion in Ayr in July, com­pet­ing against gym­nasts from Bur­dekin and Townsville.

The Bur­dekin Blast In­ter­na­tional pro­vided a plat­form for the girls to over­come their nerves and show­case their skills.

Whit­sun­day gym­nast An­nie Lo­he­man was among the stars of the com­pe­ti­tion, gain­ing ex­cel­lence for her level one rou­tines.

Kayla Mil­liken, Sharlee Mor­ris and Tess Bates also suc­cess­fully com­pleted level two.

Lily Chap­man, Lucy Sherrington and Chloe Mor­ri­son from the Whit­sun­days com­pleted their pre-level 3 rou­tines.

Whit­sun­day and Bowen PCYC Gym­nas­tics Clubs coach Vicki Thomp­son said she was proud of all girls who took part.

“Get­ting up to per­form by your­self in front of a panel of judges and large crowds on equip­ment such as a 10-cen­time­tre-wide beam can be dif­fi­cult.

“They did ex­tremely well,” she said.

Thomp­son said ev­ery­one rose above the chal­lenges posed by Cy­clone Deb­bie.

Train­ing has been con­ducted at the Ki­para Hall while the PCYC build­ing un­der­goes re­pair.
