State’s best gymnasts put on a show for state club championships

Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) and Men’s Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) State Club Championships

Nearly 1,200 gymnasts have put on an impressive performance for the Gymnastics Queensland State Club Championships on the Sunshine Coast, with Brisbane Grammar School’s MAG gymnasts rising to the top.

Brisbane’s Delta Gymnastics athletes dominated the overall WAG division during five days of competition between 28 June and 2 July with 37 clubs participating across the events.

State rivalry was at its finest for this year’s Border Challenge which saw Western Australia’s Leyla Do overcoming a tight contest for the level 7 WAG division.

Queensland managed to claw back a podium finish in the level 8 and level 9 WAG Division with Bronte Ince and Jorja Gunther winning their divisions respectively.

It was a remarkable show of effort from the 18 gymnasts with intellectual disabilities who took part in the Special Olympics program.

Queensland Gymnastic’s Kym Dowdell said it was great to see so much pride and enthusiasm from the athletes who put incredible effort into the competition.

“This is what this event is all about – making sure our athletes feel included and accepted with a pathway to compete,” said Ms Dowdell.

“We have had an increase since last year of people with a disability joining the competition.”

Gympie Gymnastics Mason Topp and Renee O’Donnell claimed the top spot for the Special Olympics level 1 division.
