On the Tenth Day of Christmas, Gymnastics Brought to Me: Aussie's Emily Little!

At the Triple Flip Wild Rose International in April, Little competed three events (Vault, Beam and Floor) to finish 18th with 39.850 and finished second on the Balance Beam (13.800) and seventh on the Floor Exercise (13.100). A member of the eighth place team at this year's World Championships, Emily finished 23rd in the All Around (53.599), 40th on the Uneven Bars (13.566), 54th on the Balance Beam (13.533) and 63rd on the Floor Exercise (13.100). She then competed at the Stuttgart DTB World Cup where she was 8th in the All Around (53.531). Rounding out the competition season in Massilia, France at the Elite Gym Massilia, Emily came third in the Elite All Around behind Russian Victoria Komova and Canadian Victoria Moors with 55.300 (14.550, 13.650, 13.900, 13.200) and was 4th on the Balance Beam with 12.975. Looking forward to what I hope will be an exciting 2012 for Emily Little! Video from Youtube user GymnCA from the Floor Event Final at the Wild Rose Invitational.
