National Spotlight Series: Julian Tavares

Young age is not a significant identifier in the world of gymnastics and Julian is a classic example. Last year, he was the youngest NSW MAG athlete to compete at the National Championships, where he grabbed a silver in team and placed fourth overall- an amazing achievement for a first National Championships. 

Training under coaches Antoine Rizzo and Tim Corey at the Australian Academy of Gymnastics, Julian is on his way to continue to excel in all apparatus. His ultimate goal? The Olympics.

With a National Title at only his second Australian Championships, we can expect big things from this pocket rocket.

An all-round competitive athlete, does Julian have a favourite apparatus? Watch the full video below!
