Gymnastics Victoria are proud of having so many talented athletes across the State. We will be featuring Athlete of the Month profiles – you can nominate an athlete to be featured by clicking here.
Emily is a Level 6 Women’s Artistic Gymnast from Jets Gymnastics in Diamond Creek. Emily only joined the squad program last year and has worked hard to consolidate and improve her skills. She is a valued member of her squad and is always supportive and encouraging.
Emily has a fierce determination and is great at goal setting. She pays attention to details and puts in 100% at every training session. Emily never complains about the more tedious aspects of training as she understands how these improve her overall performance. She is a great team player, always encouraging others within her own squad, the wider gym and athletes from competing gyms. She has an ability to get along with everyone, and constantly builds positive relationships with those around her.
She has seen this work pay off in a stellar competition season where she has placed first All-Around in 3 out of 4 competitions so far and qualified for the Victorian Championships. She came first in the All-Around Competition at the Jets Invitational, Waverley Acromat and Metro North Regional Championships.
Emily is also looking forward to being able to contribute to the club through coaching once she turns 14.
Keep up the good work Emily!
