Successful gym meet

PLANS are already in place to get a Singapore based gymnastics club to come back to the region after a successful meet last weekend at the Gymfinity Invitational.

Prime gymnastics club, who had eight athletes compete in the men's competition, shone at the final Invitational event of the year in Bundaberg.

They would win three overall events with Jer Rong Chong winning the level seven open competition, Chanya Tan taking out the level four open event, and Benjamin Laycock winning the under eight level three title.

Not to be outdone, the locals also performed well, with Gymfinity winning three overall events as well.

Sean Andreoli took out the under seven level two event with Paige Hogan winning level nine in open after progressing from level 8 just two weeks beforehand.

Ellie Graham-Jones, in her first ever meet, would take out the under nine level three event.

Tracy Hogan, director of Gymfinity, said the international club provided plenty of highlights for the competition.

"The Singapore team did well, and showed the rest of the clubs just how hard they train to compete in events," she said.

"It taught our boys and girls a lot and we hope to use that in the future to improve our gymnasts."

Gymfinity also said they got plenty of support for the event.

"We had a strong crowd and plenty of people came out which was fantastic for the club," she said.

"We have one more intra-club day to finish off 2015, before our focus turn to 2016, when we host the central Queensland regionals for the first time since 2013."
