Bursting on to the scene in 2011 when competing in his first Senior competition, Mitchell Morgans has been a model of consistency ever since, regularly challenging Australia’s best gymnasts, particularly in his pet event, High Bar.
Morgans has finished on the podium every year since his 2011 debut, winning five medals (including two gold) in the team compeition, as well as winning six individual apparatus medals – including his breakthrough High Bar gold in 2014.
His achievements on the High Bar enabled him to win senior selection in the Commonwealth Games team for Glasgow 2014. Unfortunately, however, injury curtailed his participation, and therefore couldn’t compete.
He returned to the podium in time for the 2015 Australian Gymnastics Championship, where he narrowly missed out on defending his title for the High Bar, finishing second behind Tyson Bull in the final. Mitchell did not compete at the 2016 Australian National Championships however he sooned returned to the competition scene. Early this year, Morgans placed a proud 2nd place on his pet apparatus - high bar - on his home turf at the 2017 Melbourne World Cup. He then followed this competition by competiting internationally at the AGF Trophy in Baku and the Doha World where he placed 4th overall on High Bar.
Mitchell currently trains at the National Centre of Excellence in Canberra with other National team members including Clay Stephens, Chris Remkes and Sean O'hara. Mitchell is aiming to be selected again for the 2018 Commonwealth Games held at the Gold Coast early next year!
