HOLD THE FRONT PAGE: Sellathurai Unstoppable!
Prashanth has qualified first to the pommel horse final and second to the rings final at the Moscow Stars of Gymnastics world cup competition. You can't spell "Proshy" without "pro"! Best of luck to him in the final, this will be a real confidence-booster.
Matthew unfortunately didn't have as much luck, only scoring an 11.950 on pommel.
Still, both athletes have represented the national program very well on their Russian sojourn. Good on you, boys.
Today was indeed the volunteer training session for Vic State Championships, and I'm very excited. There is a rather nice group of people taking part this year (one of them a former schoolmate of mine!) and for those of you wondering, I'm pretty sure you can still contact GV to offer your assistance, as there have apparently been some late pull-outs. I'd never been to the State Netball and Hockey Centre but I can tell from our brief tour it will fit the event and all its buzzing spectators fantastically. It's going to be a big year, with special acro, aero and rhythmic displays throughout the artistic competition.
ETA: Prashanth ended up with silver on pommel (damn you, Berki!) so he can add yet another medal to his collection. He also managed a 7th place on rings.
