Queensland athletes recently competed in one of the state’s most hotly contested gymnastics events — the Gymnastics Queensland Senior State Championships and State Team Trial — in Brisbane between Thursday, 11 April and Sunday, 14 April.

More than 40 gymnastics clubs participated, with athletes from men’s artistic gymnastics, women’s artistic gymnastics and acrobatic gymnastics disciplines showcasing their sporting prowess.

Gymnastics Queensland Chief Executive Officer Kym Dowdell said the four-day event saw more than 375 of the state’s best athletes compete for the title of Queensland champion.

“This is one of the most important competitions on the state gymnastics calendar with gymnasts competing to be named in the Queensland State Team for the upcoming Australian National Gymnastics Championships held in Melbourne from 20 May,” Ms Dowdell said.

“Representing Queensland and competing at nationals is a huge accomplishment for any gymnast so we saw the absolute best from all the athletes competing. 

“The event showcased Queensland’s most senior level athletes from Levels 7-10, Junior International and Senior International in both women’s and men’s artistic gymnastics, as well as acrobatic gymnasts.

The Premium Session, which took place on Friday evening, featured 2018 Commonwealth Games athletes Georgia Godwin, Georgia-Rose Brown and Michael Tone, as well as Senior Internationals Kate Sayer and Heath Thorpe.

“All participating gymnasts qualified through regional events held throughout March so we certainly saw some of Queensland’s best athletes in action,” Ms Dowdell said.
