Gymnasts to compete in Queensland Cup
Gymnasts from around the country will converge on Nambour Christian College on the Sunshine Coast this weekend as part of the 2016 Aerobic Gymnastics Queensland Cup taking place on 9 and 10 July.
More than 300 gymnasts performing close to 400 routines are preparing to battle it out for a place on the podium, with the hotly contested trophies for the top-performing international gymnasts and gymnastics clubs in athletes’ sights.
Gymnastics Queensland Chief Executive Officer Kym Dowdell said gymnastics clubs based as far as Victoria and Western Australia would participate in the event, with the two-day meet set to showcase Australia’s most talented gymnasts in this discipline.
“The Queensland Cup is one of the state’s premier aerobic gymnastics events and is the first in a series of events that enable elite athletes to qualify for the national championships,” Ms Dowdell said.
“The high-energy routines generally combine elements of traditional aerobics, sports acrobatics and rhythmic gymnastics with music, dance and choreography, so spectators will be treated to a spectacular display of strength, skill and flexibility.”
Ms Dowdell said anyone looking for some affordable family entertainment these school holidays was invited to come along and cheer on the gymnasts, with the event open to the public.
“Whether you’re a seasoned gymnast yourself or simply someone that loves watching sport, the performances delivered at the Aerobic Gymnastics Queensland Cup are bound to impress.”
The event will be held at Nambour Christian College, 2 McKenzie Road, Woombye. Day passes are available at the door and cost $10 for adults and $5 for children.
