Attracting competitors and spectators from near and far, Mareeba Gymnastics hosted seven clubs from Townsville to Cairns for the three-day event at the Arthur Randolf Gymnasium. 

The local team also ranked third overall in the competition, while Atherton’s team Momentum came in fifth, and Malanda’s Gymnastics Club came seventh. 

Mareeba Gymnastics’ Beth Flemming said having such a large number of participants in the gymnasium was something the club was incredibly proud of and hoped to do again soon.

“The highlights were having 360 competitors from seven different clubs coming to Mareeba over the three days and seeing all the support that came with them,” she said. 

“The gymnasts really enjoyed themselves and supported each other throughout the competition.”

Momentum Gymnastics coach and general manager Cherie Mills said she was proud of her gymnasts and the effort they put in throughout each event. 

“We were very impressed with the whole event, and the girls’ hard work and dedication really paid off,” she said. 

“We preach team and supporting each other and encouraging each other no matter what and that really showed.

“The event was a huge credit to Mareeba Gymnastics and Kelly Tulloch (head coach) – they and their volunteers put on a magnificent event.”
