City?s gymnasts invited to Austrian event



GLADSTONE Gymnastic Club is off to a flying start in 2005 with a number of the club's gymnasts fully into the swing of things already.

The place is buzzing after the news the club's display squad has been invited to the 2007 World Gymnaestrada in Austria.

The invitation is big news for the 21-member display squad and coach Jennifer Rowland who has worked wonders.

The display squad are now on the lookout for sponsors to help them with their Austria trip, so for more information phone Di on 4972 0300.

In more news, sisters Dayna and Ella Lawrie are back home after attending a workshop at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) in Canberra.

The dynamic duo certainly benefited from the invitationonly workshop attended by gymnasts from right across Australia. Both girls said the workshop was hard work, but they came home with plenty of new ideas to work on.

Meanwhile, Men's Artistic Gymnastic (MAG) head coach Grant Onions with support from Rowland ran a workshop of their own in the harbour city during the school holidays.

The workshop was the first of its kind in Gladstone and proved popular with gymnasts from as far away as Emerald taking part.
