Male gymnasts from across the region are gearing up to compete for the title of regional champion, with around 40 athletes taking part in the in the 2017 Sunshine Coast Men’s Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) Junior Regional Championships in Kunda Park next week.
The event — which will be held at Maroochy Beach Gymnastics Club on Sunday, 20 August — is a stepping stone for local athletes to qualify for the state championships being held in Brisbane in September.
Gymnastics Queensland Chief Executive Officer Kym Dowdell said participating gymnasts would demonstrate their strength, flexibility and artistry throughout the one-day event.
“Competitors have been practicing their routines over the last few months in preparation for this event, and I’m confident we’ll see some really polished and inspiring performances,” Ms Dowdell said.
“Seven clubs are set to participate, with gymnasts competing on apparatus such as the floor, pommel horse, rings, vault, parallel bars and horizontal bars.”
Ms Dowdell said competitors from as young as six-years-old would take to the floor, highlighting the region’s local talent.
“While the focus is on having fun, there’s definitely a strong sense of healthy competition amongst our gymnasts and I have no doubt it will make for some great performances.”
“Gymnasts have their sights firmly set on achieving a place on the podium and we wish all competitors the best of luck.”
Ms Dowdell encouraged anyone with an interest in gymnastics as well as general sport enthusiasts to attend.
“Gymnastics is a visually impressive spectator sport and these meets make for a highly entertaining day out for spectators.”
