More than 200 female gymnasts from across the region are putting the final touches to their routines as they prepare to compete in the 2018 Sunshine Coast Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Junior Regional Championships in Maroochydore this weekend.

To be held at Maroochy Beach Gymnastics Club on 25 and 26 August, the event 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 the event would be a two-day showcase of local talent where gymnasts would demonstrate their strength, flexibility and artistry.

“Eight clubs are set to participate, with 209 gymnasts competing on women's apparatus including the vault, bars, beam and floor,” Ms Dowdell said.

“These athletes are very competitive and have their sights set on the State Championships next month, so I’m certain we’ll see some very polished and inspiring performances.”

“While the focus is on having fun, there will certainly be healthy competition amongst our gymnasts as they aim for a podium finish.”

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.”

The event will be held at Maroochy Beach Gymnastics Club, 99-101 Wises Road, Maroochydore. For further details, please visit www.gymqld.org.au or call 3036 5607.
