Videos have cropped up from the recent SE Queensland regional championships and state trial, many thanks to the YouTuber who went to the effort.
Check out some stars from the sunshine state here.
Also (swinging by Perth for just a moment), it was reported in The West Australian today that senior Emily Little has withdrawn from Commonwealth Games selection trial but has not abandoned her campaign to compete in Delhi altogether.
The report explained that she has strained elbow ligaments after an awkward landing on a bars dismount. It's not serious, although she will apparently be petitioning through to the second Worlds team trial in addition to the Commonwealth Games team selection. Liz Chetkovich said (forgive me if this quote is not verbatim) that she, "imagines [Emily] will be selected based on her performances earlier this year, but with the proviso that she will have to show fitness before the team's departure for India". The injury will prevent her from doing weight-bearing exercise for three weeks, leaving her just a couple of weeks to get ready for the Games selection trials. It is believed this would be too short a time period, thus they felt the need to withdraw Emily.
Liz is confident Emily will be back in training before Nationals, but in the meantime she is working on leg strength, flexibility and overall choreography.
Lauren Mitchell is back to "95%" and should be ready for trials, despite her tumbling and vault work still being done on soft surfaces to protect her ankle.
And if you hadn't spotted it earlier (I thought people had been talking about some other person named Olivia, duh), Olivia Vivian is returning home (!!!) to compete as part of WA's National Level 10 team.
