International Gymnix 2019
7 – 10 March
Last week 4 NSW High Performance gymnasts travelled to Montreal, Canada, as a part of the Australian team to compete in the 2019 International Gymnix. Emma Nedov and Elena Chipizubov (Sydney Gymnastics Centre) were a part of the bronze medal winning team, along with team mates Romi Brown (VIC) and Kate Sayer (QLD).
Emma, one month following a World Cup silver medal in Melbourne, continued her international medal success finishing 3rd on Uneven Bars and 6th All-Around. Emma is now heading to Baku, Azerbaijan, for the FIG World Cup which will act as the second of six Olympic qualification events. The World Cup will kick off on the 14th of this month.
Elena Chipizubov, making her senior debut this year, earned her first individual senior international medal, taking home bronze on Beam. Elena was also the only Australian to make the apparatus finals on Floor, placing fifth on this event. Narrowly missing out on a medal by only 0.2!
Taking the international stage for the very first time, Manly Warringah’s Chloe Trisic, performed consistent routines which saw her make the individual apparatus finals on Beam and finish in 6th place. Chloe was apart of the Junior team which finished in 4th place in the team event.
Erin Modaro (Sydney Gymnastics Centre) competed in the Challenge Gymnix competition, where she competed outstanding routines and came away from the competition 4th in the All-Around event, 1st on the Uneven Bars as well as 3rd on Beam.
We congratulate all of the athletes and coaches on a successful tour in Montreal and wish them the best of luck as they prepare for the upcoming NSW Senior State Championships which will take place on the 13-14th April.
