Gabriel O'Sullivan

                                             
      

Western Australian Gabriel O’Sullivan is recognised as one of Australia’s brightest young MAG talents, particularly in his pet pommel horse event. 

The Perth student won four Pommel Horse National titles in five years from 2010-14 – the only blight being 2012 when he missed the Championships altogether. In 2013, he added All-Apparatus, Rings and Vault gold medals to his repertoire, and backed up his results with second in 2014’s All-Apparatus final. 

In 2015, O’Sullivan made a seamless transition into senior competition at the National Championships, winning silver in Pommel Horse despite falling, and only missed out on gold by 0.075.
