Our big red fire engine does it again!

She won floor (14.275), beam (15.325) and bars (14.150) in a historic display of dominance from an Australian gymnast.

“Last night was a success, not only because she won the medals, but it was a statement that she’s a true professional, that she loves her gymnastics and when she goes out she can back herself up.
“Keep that history book open, just love the achievements that we’re making at the moment.”
Some videos from the event are going up at this account, something of Lauren's may crop up if you keep your eyes peeled.
There is also a routine report up at The Couch Gymnast.
In other quite cool news, Loz's triple wolf turn has been submitted to the FIG for recognition in the Code of Points (and thus to be named after her).
She was mentioned in the Sydney Morning Herald, which also noted:
Following a brief training stint with the Romanian gymnastics team this week, Mitchell will journey to Glasgow to compete in the final world cup event of the year from November 18 to 21, followed by the renowned Toyota Cup in Japan from December 10 to 12.
Lauren we are so proud of you.
Personally, I hear an American Cup invite calling...
(ETA: Thanks to Nade for the heads-up... NEW LEO!)
