Gymnastics Australia has announced the Women who will compete at the Pacific Rim Gymnastics Championships in Everett, Washington on the 17th and 18th of March and those who will compete at the Gymnix competition in Montreal, Canada from the 8th to 11th of March. At the Pacific Rim Selection trial, Western Australian Emily took out the Senior All Around, whilst Victorian Alexandra Eade took out the Juniors.

STOP PRESS: According to today's West Australian newspaper which you can read online here. Emily won the All Around in her combined total from both days and also on Day One of the trial, whilst Georgia Simpson topped score in the All Around on Day Two! Lauren Mitchell scored the highest marks on Floor and Balance Beam. Martine George also said that
Mitchell is talented across both areas but has had a bit of a problem with her shoulder and has eased off on training to make sure she is fit and healthy for the competitions.However, she has overcome an ankle injury from last year's world championships in Tokyo in October, when she was unable to defend her title on the floor.
"We are bedding down last year's upgrades for Lauren but her competition program should be ready to go by the end of February," George said.
