What a weekend! Well the 2018 Senior State Championships is over for another year and what an incredible few days we had!
With many stunning performances and record-breaking results, the highlight of Senior States was the true team spirit our gymnasts showed, both on the floor and in the stands!
This year, gymnasts from all three Delta clubs (Delta Brisbane, Southport Gymnastics and Barron Valley Gymnastics Club) competed at Snr State Championships at Chandler. Cheered on by the Delta Army, family, coaches and friends it was wonderful to see so many smiling faces enjoying gymnastics! We are so proud of all of the competitors and coaches on such a fantastic weekend!
After a inspiring 4 days, in 2018 we are excited to announce Delta Brisbane have had a record of 12 gymnasts selected on the Queensland Team, to represent the state at the upcoming Australian Championships in Melbourne (21st to 26th May). That’s 3 gymnasts in each team from Level 7-10!
Delta Brisbane also have six individual level 10 gymnasts who have qualified for National Championships and Commonwealth Game Silver Medallist Georgia Godwin will also be competing in the Snr International division.
Southport Gymnastics have 2 amazing gymnasts who have qualified for the State Team and Barron Valley Gymnastics have 3 WAG Level 10’s & 2 MAG Level 9’s heading to National Championships as individuals!
Further to this, 10 gymnasts across all three Clubs were selected on the Border Challenge Team, which will compete against NSW, VIC, ACT & WA at State Club Championships later this year.
At Snr State Championships, gymnasts from across the state in level 7-10 perform across two days of competition. Day 1, sees the girls and boys vying individually for the State Champion title and Day 2 is the challenge for State Team selection (where gymnast’s total scores from both days combine and the top 8 are selected in each level).
This year, along with our record number of State Team and Border Challenge Team members, Delta saw 78 incredible gymnasts get out there and show Queensland what they have got!
