Aerobic Gymnasts at the ready for Senior State Championships

Posted on

Almost 70 super fit aerobic gymnasts are preparing for the Aerobics Gymnastics Senior State Championships and State Team Trial taking place on Saturday 30 March at Brisbane State High School.

Individual athletes and group performers will present their high-energy routines as they vie for a position on the Queensland state team.

Gymnastics Queensland Chief Executive Officer Kym Dowdell said the aerobic gymnastics discipline involves complex, high intensity movement patterns to music and would be a fantastic platform for talented gymnasts to display their skills.

“The Senior State Championships is a key event for gymnasts to gain selection in the Queensland team to compete at the upcoming national championships in Melbourne during May.”

“The event will include performances from individuals, pairs, trios and groups, and if past competitions are anything to go by, we will see some spectacular routines.”

The Queensland State Championships event is one of the state’s premier aerobic gymnastics events and organisers are excited to be travelling to Brisbane State High Indoor Sports Complex for the first time.

“This is the first year the championships will head to this venue, which provides tiered spectator seating, perfect for taking in the exhilarating performances,” Ms Dowdell said.

“The music will be pumping and the gymnasts will be putting on intense and entertaining routines whilst having fun and getting a good feel for the competition environment.

“If you’re in the area, I highly recommend bringing the family down to Brisbane State High School to see the gymnasts in action.”

The 2019 Aerobic Gymnastics Senior State Championships will be held at Brisbane State High School Indoor Sports Complex, cnr Vulture and Edmonstone Streets, South Brisbane. Spectators are welcome, with tickets selling at the door for $15 per session.
