Pacific Rim MAG Team Final/AA and Rhythmic

Unfortunately I was not home after 11:30 today, so couldn't link you to live coverage of the men's event.

The good news is, Australia put in a stellar effort, finishing in 4th (but ahead of Russia. RUSSIA, GUYS! RUSSIA!) Josh Jefferis was pipped for AA medals in 5th, with London rival Tom Pichler in 8th. Brody-Jai Hennessy was our highest junior AAer in 8th.

International Gymnast has a summary of the top 4 teams' performances today.

Aussies feature in USA Gymnastics' photo gallery here.

We finally got a notch on the medal tally with Janine Murray snatching bronze in rhythmic all-around in seniors. Our juniors unfortunately finished out of the top 12.

MAG Apparatus finallists:

Josh FX, PB, SR, HB
Tom PH, HB
Sam SR
Brody VT, PB
Lachlan HB

So we have medal chances on all apparatus! Good luck, fellas!

Josh would have to be a front runner for the Olympic spot. Well done Josh. You always put in 100% in training whilst being a fabulous role model for the younger gymnasts coming through.
