1. A sweet article on Nationals-bound bars anchor for Oregon State, Olivia Vivian, that recently got forwarded to me.
2. QLD's Natalia Joura featured briefly on Channel Ten's "Totally Wild". Apologies if the link doesn't work.
3. Check previous post's comments for notes and observations from the VWHPC Invitational (which I unfortunately missed). The highlight? Zoe Lorenzin's Yurchenko double!
4. Pacific Rim alternate Emma Nedov featured in a North Shore Times article last week.
The Year 10 Brigidine College student impressed the judges after executing a difficult flip, flip, lay-out manoeuvre.
“That’s a very difficult skill and [Australian representative] Lauren Mitchell and I are the only two girls in Australia who are doing it,” she said. “It’s something I am proud of when I stick it and it makes my beam [routine] more interesting.”
Speaking of Lauren Mitchell, please be advised that she is reported to have withdrawn from the upcoming Glasgow World Cup.
Thanks to everyone who has sent me news and observations from the world of Aussie gymnastics. Keep 'em coming!
