Rebecca Osborne



Rebecca Osborne was born in the UK and started gymnastics when she was 4 with her kindergarten friends.

Rebecca burst onto the scene at her first Australian Aerobics Championships where she finished first in the National Development Individual Female category - her favourite gymnastics moment.

Despite her young age, Rebecca has many international competitions under her belt with a 7th place at the 2015 ANAC International and a 14th place at the 2017 Suzuki World Cup in Japan. We look
forward to watching Rebecca progress through the ranks in the coming years.
