Tasmanian’s set to soar after being selected to National Trampoline and Tumbling Squad

Gymnastics Tasmania is thrilled to have 11 gymnasts selected as members of the 2022-23 Gymnastics Australia National Trampoline and Tumbling Squad. The National Squad seeks to identify athletes with the potential to contribute to Gymnastics Australia's High Performance targets.  

With all members of the group training at Kingborough Gymsports, it is the largest number of Tasmanians represented on a national squad.  

Kingborough Gymsports, Trampoline Team Leader, Ben Kelly said the record number of athletes selected to the national squad was “testimony to the hard work the gymnasts and coaches have put in since the beginning of the pandemic to ensure all athletes returned to training safely and utilised the downtime from competition to refine technique and build on skill repertoires.”  

 “The success of the gymnasts is also supported by a training venue that delivers quality equipment and flexible training times to ensure the team can fulfil training requirements while also focusing on schooling, university and/or workforce commitments,” said Kelly.  

“We are hoping 2022 will be another successful year for Gymnastics in Tasmania and Kingborough Gymnasts at key domestic events resulting in selection to represent Gymnastics Australia at the international level in 2022 and beyond.”  

Gymnastics Tasmania CEO, Brooke Kneebush said, Tasmania has long had great success in the gymnastics discipline securing four Gold, four Silver and four Bronze individual medals as well as a Silver and two Bronze medals in the team events at last year’s Australian Gymnastics Championships. 

“We congratulate each member selected to the team and look forward to watching them develop over the coming years,” Kneebush said.
