I personally predict big things from Amber Fulljames. In fact, FROM TODAY I hereby throw my full support behind the pocket rocket from Queensland, who made a name for herself at the National Apparatus Challenge earlier this year, in the face of recent retirements by the likes of Sims, Dykes and Webb.

Shine on, Amby! Go you good thing!
VOTE 1 (B)AMBI FOR NATIONAL CHAMPION!
