So it's the morning after the night before, so to speak (at 8:30 in the evening...). Read Waverley's take on their new gymnastics superstar here. Read an Australian Olympic Committee article here. Some ace photos in there. Apparently Angela got a mention on radio this morning, too!
A cute article from the Sydney Morning Herald is here.
"I can't believe it, it's weird but it's great."Eagle-eyed Victorians might have spotted Angela's name in the sports listings in the Herald Sun today; unfortunately she was listed as a medallist on bars, not beam!
Our thoughts go out to Brody-Jai Hennessy who, despite a mistake that resulted in a last place finish on his signature event, showed great poise and sportsmanship by getting back up on the bar and finishing his routine. That's a determined athlete right there. And to demonstrate that at your very first overseas competition shows that you'll handle any knock that comes at you along your journey.
Trampolinist Madeleine Johnson finished a creditable 6th in the women's tramp final at the Games.
We await news of our rhythmic gymnastics team's performances. Best of luck to our remaining gymsporters!
