Gymnast sisters picked for AIS camp
DYNAMIC gymnastic sisters Dayna and Ella Lawrie could be on track for higher honours after being invited to a camp at the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS).
The talented sisters were spotted by Australian junior development coach Ju Ping Tian as gymnasts with talent and potential after starring in Caloundra recently.
Ju Ping Tian immediately invited the sisters to attend a four-day camp at the Canberra-based Institute.
While in the capital, Dayna and Ella will train at the world-class AIS gymnastic arena, be coached by the top senior coaches and mix with the country's top gymnasts.
Understandably, both of the girls are very excited about heading to Canberra as is proud mum Donna.
'We are very proud and pleased for both the girls that they have been selected for the clinic,' Donna said.
'Both the girls can't wait to go.'
Gladstone Gymnastics Club coach Anna Turetschek said the sisters certainly deserved their AIS chance.
'The Lawrie sisters are both talented gymnasts who have trained very, very hard,' Turetschek said.
'Gymnastics is not a sport you get good at unless you work hard and are dedicated. This experience at the AIS will be invaluable for them.'
