Australia takes on the World in Day One of the Melbourne World Cup


After months of anticipation, the Gymnastics World Cup Melbourne is finally here with day 1 Qualifications coming come to an end. Whilst results didn’t quite fall the way of the Australians, the night provided much needed competition practice ahead of an important period heading into Tokyo 2020.

Competition, saw our MAG athletes compete on the Floor, Pommel Horse and Rings. And for our WAG athletes, the Vault and Uneven Bars. With all atheletes competing for a top eight finish to proceed to the finals.

Georgia-Rose Brown (6th) and Georgia Godwin (7th) were among the highlights for the Australian WAG team, with both qualifying for the Uneven Bars final, to be held on Saturday 22 February. Georgia-Rose will be looking for another strong performance on Saturday with valuable Olympic qualification points on the line.

MAG athlete Marcus Casamento made his international debut tonight, placing a respectable 12th on Floor.

Tomorrow night will feature MAG Vault, Parallel Bars and High Bar and WAG Beam and Floor.
