Trampolinist Take On Minsk
Another month, another World Cup for our Trampoline gymnasts. Over the Easter long weekend, 6 of the NSW High Performance Squad members traveled to Minsk, Belarus, to represent Australia at the FIG World Cup. This event acted as the second qualifier for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games and the competition saw 4 of our NSW reps finish in the top 20, gaining them valuable points which will contribute to their overall ranking and potential qualification for the Games.
Dominic Clarke (Sydney Gymnastics Centre) – 13th
Blake Rutherford (Eastlake Trampoline Sports) – 14th
Aiden Thomas (Eastlake Trampoline Sports) – 40th
Shaun Swadling (Eastlake Trampoline Sports) – 86th
Jessica Pickering (Eastlake Trampoline Sports) – 19th
Kira Ward (Sydney Gymnastics Centre) – 20th
Congratulations to all of the athletes and coaches on a successful tour.
The athletes will now head home to continue their training in preparation for the Australian National Championships, just 5 weeks away. The competition will act as a qualification for another 2 FIG World Cups as well as the World Championships.
