Queensland athletes representing Australia at Melbourne World Cup

We would like to wish our three Qld WAG Athletes who are competing at the Melbourne World Cup all the best for a successful competition.  The Melbourne World Cup is an Apparatus World Cup, therefore athletes compete on their strongest apparatus, rather than an All Around competition.  Our 3 athletes are:
Georgia Godwin - Delta Gymnastics Brisbane - Vault, Beam & Floor
Rianna Mizzen - Lawnton Academy & Qld High Performance Centre - Uneven Bars
Georgia-Rose Brown - Premier Gymnastics & Qld High Performance Centre - Uneven Bars
Congratulations also to two of Qld’s Judges selected to judge at the event - Tracie Brooks & Laura Watson.
