November Gymnastics Wrap Up



After an explosive ten days of gymnastics action at Geelong Arena the November Gymnastics Championships have come to an end. 

The event began with the Trans Bass Challenge which took place on Friday 10 November and included Level 6 and Level 7 gymnasts from Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. Competing in both team and individual categories, our Victorian team proved too strong for our neighbouring States taking out both the Level 6 and Level 7 All-Around Team titles. A fantastic effort by Victoria to be crowned the Trans Bass Challenge Champion State and a special well done to individual All-Around Champions Hanano Sakamoto (Level 6) and Chloe Frost (Level 7).

The November Gymnastics Championships continued with our Women’s Artistic Gymnastics Junior Victorian Championships on both Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 November.
