2018 Australian Gymnastics Championship

What an amazing #18ausgym for the Western Australian Gymnastics State Team and for all the High Flyers’ Gymnasts involved. Here are some words from our coaches:

Paige Trainor:
“I’m so beyond proud of these girls. This week they competed at their first National Championships. They came with no expectations and were excited just to be here with their team. Both girls helped the Gymnastics WA level 8 team to a 5th place finish and qualified to compete as individuals in the day 2 all-around final. Milly had two solid days of competition and ended up ranking in the top 10 on both bars and beam. Jannah had a couple of little mishaps but showed beautiful quality gymnastics throughout. Most importantly, both have displayed amazing attitudes and sportsmanship through training and competition here in Melbourne. Hopefully, they made lots of new friends and some amazing memories. They’re definitely both winners in my book  😊”

Kazutaka Maejima:

“Well done to our MAG boys, who competed at the Australian Gymnastics Championships. Our 12 boys competed while dealing with time difference and managing their nutrition.

They also participated in team events and contributed to the Team GWA’s scores. It was also a great opportunity to share ideas, joy and that atmosphere with boys from other clubs.

Moreover, observing senior training and competition was a fantastic experience too.

I hope that the boys are motivated by their performances and try to be back there in the future”

Elliot Stratton:
“From Wednesday 30th of May – Sunday 3rd June, 33 High Flyers Trampoline sports athletes were competing for the West Australian State Team, against Australias best athletes at the 2018 Australian Gymnastics Championships. Accompanying the 33 athletes were High Flyers Coaches, Elliot Stratton and Ricardo Santos, with Tony Burton also at the event as a WA Judge.

WA is really starting to establish itself year after year as a serious contender in all Trampoline events at the National Championships, and that is down to the hard work and dedication of all the athletes, coaches and judges in our state.”
