All The Featured Ladies (All The Featured Ladies)

The artistic portion of Nationals 2013 is nigh!

The Australian Olympic Committee has posted a brief update with absentee Lauren Mitchell. Nationals will be our first real indication of whether or not the "keeping the national team at home to up difficulty and consistency" approach will be one that works in our favour.

And we must wish a very Happy 21st Birthday to Queensland superstar Larrissa Miller today!

I'm psyched!

Media Morsels

I'm just flinging up the gold flecks as I find them on my daily digs. Mind your shoes.

Gymnastics NSW have some great videos up at their youtube channel. These include montages of their recently-crowned state champions, and footage of their state gymsport teams training for Nationals.

Not to be outdone, Gymnastics Victoria have put up hi-res video of highlights from their recent state championships. Here is part one. And here, they get to have a bit of a giggle in between training. GVTV is pretty smashing, can't wait to see more!

There are two videos I've uncovered (beam, floor) from the recent WAIS Russia tour.

And, to finish, off, I do love a good montage. Here is one for rhythmic Olympian Janine Murray.

Back Yourself A Winner

Gymnastics Australia have a wonderful opportunity for those wanting to stamp their name on the sport of gymnastics.

By taking part in their campaign at Sportaroo with athlete or event sponsorship, you can get up close and personal with the nation's best gymnasts at the upcoming National Championships.

Help awesome athletes be that bit more awesome by knowing you're behind them all the way.
