Splitting Hairs

Good evening! Some news items for you.

1. Northern Districts Gymnastics Club in WA (former stomping ground of Lady Dasha) is taking part in the World's Greatest Shave to raise money for cancer awareness and research. Athletes in the club rallied for their coach, Derek May, to appear on The 7pm Project and have his head shaved live on national television, along with a handful of other nominated candidates, as part of the cause. You can read about Derek at the show's website here and sponsor NDGC at the Shave site here. I thank the club's gymnasts for getting in touch with me and letting me know about their participation in this fun and worthwhile campaign.

2. Peggy Liddick, Allana Slater and outgoing GA head Jane Allen all gave their opinion to ABC radio on the Team China 2000 Olympics age-falsification scandal. Read the transcript or hear the news item here at the ABC site.

Seen/heard anything in the Aussie gymnastics realm? Hit me up (do kids even say that anymore?) at ozgymblog@gmail.com

Northern Districts had a goal of $1000 and are now past $7000 raised. Way to go Derek and all who are participating! I think it is tomorrow night's show that he will be on.
