My apologies for missing last night but my biggest bundles of thanks to Brindabella for keeping me updated throughout the night!

This bit made me sniffle...
“It feels so strange. I never thought I’d be a national champion. I never thought I was that girl."
Awwww, Georgia! Your time would surely come. You're ace. You are that girl, you just didn't know it yet!
Congratulations to last night's all-around medallists!
Georgia Bonora - Gold
Maryanne Monckton - Silver
Shona Morgan - Bronze
Angela Donald - Gold
Svetlana Sanders - Silver
Amelia McGrath - Bronze
A Waverley double-header! A Victorian trifecta! And a podium finish for everyone's other favourite person nicknamed Mez! I gave the loudest 'yay' ever heard in a Melbourne bar when I got a text bearing the news.
Congratulations must also go to Naazmi Johnston who won her third consecutive(!) senior rhythmic all-around title yesterday.
Oregon State did a catch-up with National 10 Champion Olivia Vivian here.
Best wishes to Ashleigh Brennan (among others!) for a speedy recovery - she was withdrawn from this second day of competition due to injury.
