A couple of news articles/profiles about Aussie gymnasts have cropped up.

Read about artistic gymnast Karina Brooks here.

I was wondering what had become of Karina Brooks! Glad to see she's attempting a comeback.

Yes, it is nice to see girls who don't just give up at the drop of a hat. She did have a very strong swing on bars at AYOF, and can actually do a proper toeshoot with amplitude and counter rotation, so if she can play on that UB strength she could be a surprise contender in future.

she broke her growth plate in her toe at AYOF warm up, probably wasn't at her best then?
