Michael Tone is currently training at the Queensland High Perfomance Centre with Sergei Hubski as his coach.

Tone started gymnastics from the very young age of two and has enjoyed every moment of it. Michael bursted onto the podiums at his first ever National Championships in 2009, taking out the title of National Champion which now has become one of his most memorable moments in gymnastics.  The 2009 National Championships was just the beginning for Michael. He returned each year still impressing us with his Performance. 

Early in 2017, Tone had to the opportunity to represent Australia in his very first Internaitonal event at his home country. Michael competed at the World cup in Melbourne placing 8th on Pommel and 7th on the rings. Tone then went on to represent Australia at the TGF Trophy in Baku and then at the Doha World cup.

Michael Tone continues with strong form and hopes to represent Australia at the 2017 World Championships later this year.
