There's Something About Mary-Anne

Sometimes big surprises come in little packages.

While Lauren Mitchell gave Australia it's second 4th placing of the Doha Challenger World Cup (nothing to sniff at of course, it's a pretty A+ new floor routine!), it was dark horse senior Mary-Anne Monckton who hung on for our only medal of the competition, and her first at a World Cup. PB's don't come much better than an international silver medal.

With a 14.700, Mez placed second to Larisa Iordache, and as you can see in the video above gave a performance more than worthy of being alongside the popular Romanian. We hope to see her give this kind of performance at the state and national championships, as the road to Rio swings by Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games.

It is so lovely to see Mez get this well deserved medal and the recognition. Keep up the great work!

Not a surprise, Mary-Anne has always had a gorgeous beam. Lovely to see it recognised :-)
