UPDATE 12th MARCH: It’s been a huge few weeks for Waverley’s Romi Brown, who competed for Australia at the International Gymnix in Montreal, Canada over the weekend. Romi did an amazing job in her first All Around representation of her country, helping Australia to claim the Bronze medal in the team competition! She was the highest ranking Australian after the first three apparatus, although a fall on Beam in the final rotation saw her finish in 18th position overall. Romi’s performance on Uneven Bars qualified her through to the individual final, where she finished in 6th place after another assured routine!

Romi’s coach, John Hart, is exceptionally proud of the way she has trained and competed over the last few weeks and they are both excited to get back into the gym to start preparing for Victorian and Australian Championships!
