Congrats to WA's best AERO Star

1:45 AM

Congratulations go to Western Australia's KIERAN GORMAN who took out the bronze medal at the 2010 Aerobics Gymnastics World Championships which were held recently in Rodez, France. And special congratulations also goes to his coach Trudi Nurse who has worked tirelessly with Spirit Gymsports and Kieran for many years. Fellow Spirit Gymsports representatives at this competition also did us proud in: Sarah Salerno and Zoe Tisdale who competed in the Individual Female division placing 39th and 33rd in qualification and the trio of Janelle Marsh, Catriona Cowden and Emma Davies who came 25th in the qualification. The 2010 World Age Group Championships also took place in Rodez with West Australians Cairo Leicester coming 14th in the Age Group 1 division 0.550 from eighth place, I'd advise you all to keep an eye on this girl and Chelsea Carroll finished off 19th in the Age Group 2 IF division. New South Wales young guns Sophie Beucker finished off in 31st for the Age Group 1 IF and Amy Behan ended up in 48th position in the Age Group 2 IF competition.

Kudos also goes to our close next door neighbours:
  • New Zealand's Charlotte Bass who finished in 12th position in the IF Age Group 2 category.
  • New Zealand's Chelsea Stitt who finished in 37th for the IF Age Group 2.
  • Vietnam's Tien Phuong Nguyen who was 17th in IM qualification.
  • Nattawut Pimpa of Thailand who was 20th for IM.
  • Angela McMillan finished in 3rd for the IF.
  • Roypim Ngampeerapong of Thailand finished in 8th in the IF category.
  • Vietnam's mixed pair consisting of Ba Dong Vu and Thi Thu Ha Tran finished in 9th whilst their neighbour Thailand consisting of Vietnam's mixed pair consisting of finished 17th.
  • The Vietnamese trio of Ba Dong Vu, Tien Phuong Nguyen and Thi Thu Ha Tran who came an incredible 6th.
And of course to the Brazilians, yes my personal favourite nation in terms of Aerobic Gymnastics, and Ivan Parejo and Sara Moreno of Spain two of my favourite Aero stars. I'm sad that Ivan had a bad day on finals day coming in 4th. In terms of the Brazilians, Marcelo Arouche Martins came 23rd in the IM section of Worlds, where as in the IF final Marcela Matos Lopez reigned supreme again. Unfortunately the Brazilian trio of Marcela and Marina Matos Lopez and Cibele Rosito Oliani had a disappointing qualification where they could only manage 15th, after coming 3rd in 2008 and first in 2004. Marina previously rocked in the mixed pair competition with Arley Marques, and am glad she is still very competitive today.
