National Spotlight Series: Shennei and Stella

Shennei and Stella from SXL GYmnastic have had an amazing competition season, kicking off with the Vegas Acrobatic Cup and opening with a gold-medal performance.

The pair won their first Nationals back in 2016, and placed third last year, to come back in 2018 with a vengeance. 

Competing internationally for the first time in only April of last year, the duo represented Australia at the World Age Championships in Belgium in April this year. 

Like may acrobatic duos, there comes a time that tops transition into base positions, with the girls now working in different groups for the next competition season. While they may no longer throw each other through the air, it's safe to say their their bond is as strong as ever!
