Gonged But Not Forgotten

As if there wasn't anything further she could win this year, Lauren Mitchell has been awarded AIS Junior Athlete of the Year.

Former gymnast turned Olympic skiing gold medallist Lydia Lassila was named Athlete of the Year.

“Lauren’s performances on the world stage demonstrate a talent beyond her years,” Senator Arbib said.

“With athletes like Lauren, the future of Australian sport is in very good hands.”

Speaking of awards, please leave a comment on this post if you're happy to see the Australian Gymnastics Blog Awards back again and, if interest proves strong enough, I will make a nominations post before the end of the week.
