Pacific Rim News: Podium Training

More training inside the arena for artistic today.

If you caught Channel 9 news this afternoon, you'd have seen a blink-and-you'll-miss-it plug for the event at the end of the sports report. It included a little bit of footage from the training session, including Emma Collister's double arabian on floor.

The Couch Gymnast (see my links tab) has some cracking photos and observations from Hisense. I thank Couchy greatly for the following photos of Aussie WAGs. Click on each for a larger version.

Apparently both Georgias are looking good but Larrissa is still struggling with that Adler combination.

Read a new preview of the event and Peggy interview here.

This is a bit off the topic - just wondering if anyone knows what the situation is with Georgia B, Shona & Emma D in terms of them competing internationally? I know they go for the big comps. eg Olympics & Worlds....but they don't seem to compete that much else??? I know Shona has been injured, so that's a bit different this year......I remember after the Olympics Peggy said it was likely Shona and Georgia would get invites to some of the big comps because they competed well in the AA.....but have they actually gone to any?

I'm not saying this is necessarily a bad thing - after all they were pretty much our top maybe competing them less helps them to peak at the right time??? Just wondering whether there is actually a planned strategy behind them tending to compete less (correct me if I've missed comps they've been in) or whether the cards have just fallen that way kind of thing in terms of being injured...not ready for big comps etc......just think of how much Allana & Trudy competed from about 98 - 2000.

Im pretty sure they've all been injured from the reports I've heard.

I remember that there was one competition last year Shona missed because of school or something but it wasn't anything significant I don't think.

Shona missed the Japan Cup due to school commitments.

Emma is presently not in the AIS/GA Olympic Squad so isn't on the selection list for assignments. However, she is working to get back on it and better her chances for Commonwealth Games selection.

All three are, for the moment, looking to Delhi. I'm not sure about their Worlds aspirations though.
