You're Shorter in Person...

Official notice from the VWHPC website:

The Victorian Women’s High Performance Centre holds open days for Family and Friends to come in and view the gymnasts and see just what is involved in their training. These sessions are normally just for family and friends and are free to come and watch but on Saturday 21st February the gymnasts from the Victorian Women’s High Performance Centre would like to invite people to come along and watch training, meet the gymnasts and see our venue. Entry is by donation (notes would be preferable) which will be forwarded to the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal.

So invite your family and friends to come along and help a very worthy cause.

Training hours are from 8am – 12pm

The Australian Gymnastics Blog does intend to be there and meet whoever possible without verbal diarrhoea. If you wish to come and say hello, that's great. Please don't do so with a pointy implement or a sinister invitation into your car. Besides, the day isn't about me. It's about gymnastics for a cause, so let's go with that.

The blog is love.

In other training news, Emily Little is profiled over at GA. There are some interesting little nuggets to be found in the piece:

The main objective for Little was the construction of a new floor routine which was choreographed and constructed by Stacey Umeh-Lees and Women's National Coach Peggy Liddick. Says Little of the new routine, "It doesn't really have a title, but I have called it the Warthog Song"

Whilst Little will be too young for this year's World Championships in London, her sights are well and truly set on the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.

Little is currently upgrading skills across all four apparatus, including upgrading to a double twisting Yurchenko on vault and including a full-in on floor.
