1. At the very recent WA State Championships, Lauren Mitchell beat(!) Dasha Joura to the all-around title. Dasha scored a PB on floor and vault, she DID do the double layout but is back to a Yurchenko double on vault as far as I understand. Lauren has reportedly upgraded to a Yurchenko 1.5 (at last). Dasha's little sis Natalia won the International Level 10 division. Read all about it here where you can also find a link to photos and video interviews.
2. Chloe Sims' depature is allegedly due to her last-place finishes at the last few verification events at training camp. Again, full details are pending.
3. TEAMHURTYWATCH!: The intense training camp in Canberra was missed by one Miss Kerby Purcell who was nursing a knee injury. Dasha Joura came out of the camp experiencing muscle tightness (see wrap in picture from State Championships). Hopefully these will dissipate by Nationals.4. Dasha will get a new floor routine after the Olympic Games.
