Woah, athlete profiles are flying thick and fast in the papers this week.
AIS/VIC gymnast and Olympic squad member Melanie Jones was profiled in the Canberra Times (spot the typo, grammar gurus, that has fluffed what should have been a rhyming headline). There are two photos of her in training, and you get some personal insight into how she feels about her progress. She could get a vault/floor specialist spot on the team... but then again her lack of international experience may work against her so she could just end up as the travelling reserve.
Call it as you will. I was quite taken with Mel when I first saw her last year - lots of power, gutsy tumbles, very exciting to watch.
