Ngarea Ri­whi, 12, of Alexan­dra Gym­nas­tics Club, who placed first in the 12 to 14 years in­di­vid­ual di­vi­sion, is on the move at the Mini Tram­po­line and Sport Aer­o­bic Com­pe­ti­tion at Molyneux Sta­dium on Sun­day. Alexan­dra Gym­nas­tics Club head coach and event or­gan­iser Sally Hart said the meet, which at­tracted around 60 com­peti­tors from In­ver­cargill, Bal­clutha and Alexan­dra, was the first to be held in Alexan­dra for ‘‘a very, very long time – at least 20 years’’. For the aer­o­bics com­peti­tors, this was their first chance to qual­ify for the na­tional cham­pi­onships, to be held in Dunedin this year. The sport has been on of­fer in Alexan­dra since last year and young en­thu­si­ast Ngarea, who has al­ready com­peted at the na­tion­als, said: ‘‘It keeps you fit and is a fun thing to do.’’
