Acrobatic Athletes to Watch
Senior International Acrobats Tori Singleton and Katelyn Dullard
Our Victorian Acrobatic State Team has some fantastic athletes who are ready to take on the Australian Gymnastics Championships! Senior International Pair Tori Singleton and Katelyn Dullard (currently coached by Melissa Presti and Steven Santo at Team Adrenalin) have had great success over the past few months. They were the first Women’s Pair to be selected for the Australian Team to compete at the 2018 World Age Group Championships held in Antwerp. They also attended the Vegas Acro Cup where they won a Silver Medal in the senior competition.
Daniel Zenkis and Lara Lamont (currently coached by Melissa Presti at Team Adrenalin) are another Senior International Pair who claimed a Silver Medal at the Vegas Acro Cup. The pair are also integral team members for the champion Team Adrenalin FusionFX team.
The National Level 8 Group from Skylark Sport with Madlen, Tegan and Ava (currently coached by Serge Sharapayeu) and National Level 9 Mixed Pair with Jasmine and Dylan (currently coached by Serge Sharapayeu at Skylark Sports) also had great results at the Vegas Acro Cup earlier this year.
