WAG: Towards 2014

The dust settled on National Clubs in Geelong, but despite being the tail end of the year, our journey to 2014's big gymnastics events is only just beginning.

Australia's junior and senior national squads are currently in Canberra, for their final training camp of the year.  The budding IDP gymnasts following in their footsteps enjoyed a clinic at the VWHPC in November, videos from which can be seen here.

I will be adding news nuggets from the latest camp as they come to hand...

* The national squads have been updated since National Clubs. See them here.

* It emerged on Twitter today that John Geddert, coach to US Olympic and World gold medallist Jordyn Wieber, spent some time in the gym with the squads. He had also taken time on the weekend to run seminars and training sessions with representatives from Gymnastics NSW. Cheers, John!

* Gymnastics Australia have started adding videos from camp! 

*... And provided us with a skills report!

* Lauren Mitchell had a chat to ABC Grandstand about injury recovery, her Christmas holiday plans and goals for 2014. Happy travels to the USA, Lauren!
