300 gym­nasts to land at Na­timuk

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

More than 300 gym­nasts will com­pete in Na­timuk and District Gym­nas­tic Club’s an­nual in­vi­ta­tional at the week­end.

Gym­nasts from level 0 to 10 in club and na­tional stream will con­test the two-day com­pe­ti­tion.

Twenty-one clubs from across Vic­to­ria and South Aus­tralia will be rep­re­sented in men’s and women’s events.

Girls will com­pete on floor, vault, un­even bars and beam, and male com­peti­tors will con­test floor, high bar, rings, vault, par­al­lel bars and pom­mel.

Head coach Lynette Mor­row said the Na­timuk com­pe­ti­tion was the club’s fi­nal event for the year and was al­ways a huge event on the calendar.

“We have gym­nasts who com­pete through­out the year, but this one is a big one for us,” she said.

“For many of our younger gym­nasts the Nati comp is their first taste of com­pe­ti­tion for the year, aside from our in­ter­nal com­pe­ti­tion in June.

“Na­timuk is well rep­re­sented, with 86 of our own gym­nasts com­pet­ing.” Mor­row en­cour­aged spec­ta­tors to at­tend. “We’re start­ing with the se­nior girls, lev­els six to 10, on Satur­day morn­ing, which will be of high stan­dard,” she said.

“In the af­ter­noon we wel­come gym­nasts from lev­els two to four, and on Sun­day morn­ing we kick off with na­tional three girls, a huge group of 48 com­peti­tors.

“Level-one girls then take the spot­light, and in the af­ter­noon our men’s com­pe­ti­tion will see more than 40 gym­nasts com­pet­ing. “It’s an ex­cit­ing week­end of gym­nas­tics.” En­try costs $5 for adults and is free for chil­dren.
