Luke Wadsworth

                                  
      

Luke Wadsworth is from Melbourne and trains at the Victorian Men’s High Performance Centre in Prahran with coaches Greg Corsiglia and Shachar Tal.

Luke began gymnastics at the age of six, attended a High Performance Program Talent Identification Day at the age of nine and was accepted into the Victorian HPC Program shortly after.

Steady progress with his gymnastics has lead Luke to compete for Australia at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival in 2009, in which the Australian team won Bronze, as well as two World Championships along with the Pacific Rim Championships in 2010.

Luke travelled to Glasgow in 2014 to compete in his first Commonwealth Games where the team placed fourth overall. 

His efforts allowed him to participate in the 2014 World Championships in Nanning, where he placed 92nd in the All-Around. 

A return to the National Championships in 2015 saw Wadsworth place second in the All-Around final behind Queensland’s Naoya Tsukuhara, while he was able to take home gold in the Parallel Bars. If this wasn't enough, Wadsworth consolidated his performances by taking out the all-round title of the 2016 Australian National Champion just ahead of Luke Wiwatowski.
