Year 5 student Amelia Townsend recently competed in a Gymnastics Queensland Junior State Championship qualifying round at Warwick on 18 July.  

Amelia currently competes in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) Level 4 for Jimboomba Gymnastics Club, and trains for over 10 hours a week after starting at this level at the beginning of the year.

To qualify for the 2021 Gymnastics Queensland Junior State Championships, competitors must achieve a total of 34 points out of a possible 40 across the four apparatus of Bars, Vault and Floor and Beam, which is Amelia’s strongest apparatus.

Supported by great coaches and a positive team, Amelia met the benchmark at the competition in Warwick which progresses her to the 2021 Gymnastics Queensland Junior State Championships held on the Gold Coast in September 2021. 

We wish Amelia every success as she trains for this prestigious event. Well done, Amelia!
