The Couch Gymnast is on the scene (ain't she always?) and has some cracking photos from WAG training up to view here. Keep your eyes on her blog (as well as this one, aheheheh) for more news and views on
You can also see a couple of training pics at the official Facebook page for the Victorian Women's High Performance Centre and this page here (thanks, MCB!).
Couchy was kind enough to send me the following report and additional pics of Team Australia in training...
I watched the Aussies train today- mostly on bars. They look good.
Larrissa nailed a few sets and did the most beautiful dismount I have seen in a long time!Georgia Bonora looked good. She seems to be coughing a little, so I hope she is not getting sick.Wheeler looked pretty good too. Her Tkatchev is pretty hot, as Peggy says. She also looks very clean.Emily Little seemed to be struggling a little today. She was quite upset when I arrived, so maybe she had hurt herself. She seems qutte tired, as though India took its toll a little, but she is still performing well. Sheer talent will push that little gun through.Lauren- well apparently she did another corker floor, but I missed it. Her bars is okay, she is working hard on it. She was vaulting well and seems to have energy to spare.Ashleigh Brennan, the quietest Australian was quietly doing her work cleanly and well.Georgia Simpson looked simply gorgeous on bars. She swings soooo beautifully!I will see their other rotations tomorrow at podium training and keep you updated.
Thanks, TCG! You're ace.
