Eureka gymnasts land podium finish

Eureka Gymnastics Club competitors Nick Howard and Amelia Everard posted strong results in the Victorian Championships and the Southern Cross Classic respectively.

Howard is the level 7 under-age Victorian vault champion while Everard finished second on the uneven bars in her level 7 over-age category.

Everard competed in the Southern Cross Classic, for limited hours gymnasts, while Howard took part in the Victorian Championships which is an unlimited hours competition.

Howard also finished fourth on the pommel horse in what was a “really good competition” for the young gymnast.

Club coach Caleb Tivendale was rapt with the results and said Everard was surprised with her result.

“She was really surprised, she said that the bar routine wasn’t the best she’d done this year, but it was one of the best on the day and that’s where it matters,” Tivendale said.

Fellow Eureka gymnasts Mietta Tanis came fifth on the beam and Naomi Everett came sixth in the uneven bars in the Victorian Championships.

Gymnasts will now turn their attention to the Victorian Team Championships in August.

While Tanis, Everett and Everard will commence trials for the Trans-Bass competition which sees Victorian representatives take on Tasmanian gymnasts.
