Top Blokes

Congratulations to the members of our men's World Championships team bound for London-

Joshua Jefferis
Sam Offord
Philippe Rizzo

Prashanth Sellathurai

Sam Simpson

Luke Wiwatowski

And they say there's no country for old men? Pssshhht. Two team members have already represented Australia at an Olympic Games. Two are previous World Championships medallists, four represented Australia at the 2006 Commonwealth Games and all but Philippe competed at the 2007 World Championships.

Read more about the team and their expectations here. Offord will compete all-around, the only member of the team to do so. Rizzo and Sellathurai, as event specialists, will aim to repeat their 2006 individual apparatus successes; Simpson and Jefferis themselves will specialise on just two apparatus each.

(There is some serious facial hair going on with the Sams!)

The men's team for the Japan Cup was also named this weekend. Congratulations to Mitchell Morgans and Michael Merceica for their selection.

Don't forget to send your photos and messages of support for the teams in the 2009 Go You Big Red Fire Engine Project!
