FOR a small club compared to some of its larger Brisbane counterparts, the Gympie Gymnastics Club is not shy about throwing its weight around in competition.

And that’s precisely what the ambitious club was able to do at the Trampoline Sports South Queensland Interclub Competition No.1 at Brisbane Bayside PYC late last month.

In total, the Gympie club sent away nine female gymnasts to the Level 1-6 competition and recorded exceptional results.

Gympie competitors to compete included Rhiannon Cox, Dannika-Lee Lyon, Mary-Helen Buchan, Emily Holmes, Summer Cunningham, Carina Shaw, Teneal Roache, Teagan Cleary and Mikaela Cleary.

Standout results included Lyon, Holmes and Teagan Cleary clinching first places against their city rivals.

Lyon took first in the Level 2 individual trampoline with a score of 48.80. Holmes won in Level 2 tumbling, scoring 52.70, while Teagan dominated Level 4 individual trampoline with a winning score of 49.30.

Club head coach Elissa Lyons was thrilled with the performances.

“It’s a great result for the club,” she said. “We’re so proud.”
