Rhythmic Round-Up

Sorry for the lack of news. It's been a bit quiet on the western front.

A big congratulations to our Aussie rhythmic team who recently competed at their World Championships in Japan.

The team finished in 22nd place, ahead of Commonwealth rivals Great Britain (23rd), Malaysia (24th) and Canada (26th), which puts them in good stead for next year's Commonwealth Games. This is the best result for an Australian team since the 1997 World Championships team, that finished 18th overall.

Individually, Naazmi Johnston posted the best-ever finish for an Australian, finishing 38 all-around. Teammates Janine Murray and Chloe Hayes finished 82nd and 91st respectively. Danielle Prince, pictured above in what I think is a *lovely* leotard, competed two apparatus only.

Congratulations again, ladies, and good luck for future events. This is a fantastic stepping stone!
