Yet another brag session

The NZ gymsports season ends with Nationals, held every year over five days starting the last day of term 3.
Every competitive gymnast (Artistic, Rhythmic, Trampoline & Aerobic) who is 9+ and Level 4+ aims to qualify and be selected to represent their region at Nationals.
Jess made reserve in 2008 for WAG L4.
2009 was a washout as she changed codes mid year so wasn't able to qualify.
But this year, this year, we knew she had a really good chance of making the Auckland team for Rhythmic L4. 
And she has.

Today was pick up the tracksuit, be in the team photo, and start to get really excited day.

So on Friday we hit the road and head for Mystery Creek Events Centre to be part of Nationals - Jess to compete and me as a volunteer.
May this be the first of many.

Fantastic news, I bet you are all excited! Fingers crossed Jess performs well, regardless of placings on the podium. My son made the Victorian karate team for the Australian Nationals this year and narrowly missed out on 3rd place. It was definitley exciting for him! he loved the tracksuit too :-)
