WATCH: There were superheroes and keen masters' competition

GYMNASTICS: All the rigorous training paid off for Gladstone's Kerry Morgan on Sunday.

She finished runner-up in the 2019 Queensland Masters after she strutted her exquisite skills in her favourite event - uneven bars.

Deadpool Shows His Stuff:

"We have been training for two years and all the training has been worth it," Morgan said.

Even though Morgan has done gymnastics from an early age, she still feels on edge before competition.

"I still get nervous, but there's plenty of team spirit and good encouragement from the crowd," Morgan said.

There was plenty of humour when Alfie Little dressed up as superhero character Deadpool.

He showed his athleticism with a series of tumbles and backflips on the floor.

"It was pretty nerve-racking but it was fun," Little said.

He performed in the high bar, rings, parallel bars and vaults later in the day and he finished first in the 40-49 Open class.

Gladstone's Zteven Whitty was spectacular on the floor.

His moves enthralled the spectators.

"It's not hard at all and I competed in the nationals last year," Whitty said.

"Gymnastics gives me a sense of place and it's a very important part of my life.

"Gymnastics is more than movement and it keeps the child in me alive."

Event founder Anna Turetschek said competition was keen and of high quality.

"It was quite hard this year and the rules are a bit more tougher for the masters," she said.
