April Victorian Championships - Day 1
The April Victorian Championships kicked off on Friday 12 April at Geelong Arena with both Women's Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) and Men's Artistic Gymnastics (MAG) sessions.
First up were our Women's Artistic Gymnasts from Level 8 Division 2 aged 15 & over followed by Level 9 Division 2 and Level 10 Division 2 in the second session. In case you're wondering about the distinction between Division 1 and Division 2, our Division 2 gymnasts train up to a limit of 12 hours whereas Division 1 gymnasts train unlimited hours.
In the afternoon we had both Women's Artistic Gymnastics and Men's Artistic Gymnastics happening. In the Women's Artistic Gymnastics it was Level 9 Division 1 gymnasts from aged 10-12 years, 13-15 years and 16 and over in the third session and then Level 10 Division 1 gymnasts aged 16 years and under and 17 years and over as well as Day 1 of Future International competition.
