AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
The recent Australian National Championships held in Gold Coast last week showcased the immense talent and dedication of Waverley Gymnastics Centre's gymnasts. Among the impressive performances, one gymnast stood out as an emerging star - Alice Johnson! Alice, a Future International gymnast, not only claimed the title of Australian National All-Around Champion, but also secured the Bars Champion and Floor Champion titles in the Future International Under 14 category. Her outstanding performance was nothing short of phenomenal and speaks volumes about her skill, determination, and hard work. We can expect great things from Alice in the future, and her achievements are a true testament to her exceptional abilities!
The success story doesn't end there. Three Senior International gymnasts from Waverley, Emily Whitehead, Breanna Scott, and Miella Brown, were selected to join the World Championships Squad. As they continue to train and compete, they will have the opportunity to vie for a spot on the final World Championships Team, which will be selected in August. We applaud their dedication and congratulate them on this significant accomplishment.
The team spirit at Waverley Gymnastics Centre was also on full display, as the Victorian Level 8 and Level 9 teams achieved commendable results in the Team competitions. The Level 8 team, comprising Neva Hunter, Jaella Koski, and Danelle Van Biljon, secured an impressive 4th place. Similarly, the Level 9 team, represented by Vonnie Xiao and Brooke Condon, also claimed the 4th place in the fiercely competitive Team event. Their commitment to excellence and teamwork were evident throughout their routines.
In the Future International Team event, Waverley Gymnastics Centre's Victorian team consisting of Alice Johnson and Abigail Thom dominated the competition, earning the well-deserved title of National Champions. Congratulations also to Chloe Horgan who is the Silver Medalist on Bars and Chloe Kousis who is the Bronze Medalist on Bars!
Last but certainly not least, the Victorian Senior International Team, comprising Miella Brown and Chloe Saliaris, secured an impressive second-place finish in the Team event. We commend their hard work and dedication in representing Waverley Gymnastics Centre with such distinction.
Finally, congratulations to Romi Brown who received a special Gymnastics Australia award for being the Best Newcomer of 2022!
The achievements of these 14 Waverley gymnasts at the Australian National Championships are a testament to their talent, perseverance, and the unwavering support they receive from their coaches and families.
