Rianna Mizzen

                 
                   

Rianna Mizzen has developed into one of Australia's most well rounded young gymnast. The Queenslander has shown plenty of talent throughout her Junior career, and after selection on the 2018 Commonwealth Games team she will be pushing her case as the next best thing in Australian Women's Gymnastics. 

In 2016 Mizzen was selected to represent Australia at the Pacific Rim Championships and Aquece Rio Test Event, she also consolidated her international form on home soil by winning the 2016 Australian All-Around title.

Just a month later - at her first World Cup Challenge event - Mizzen's consistency continued, when she was crowned the Uneven Bars Champion in Anadia, Portugal.

Rianna stepped it up in 2017 by representing Australia at four separate international events, winning Bronze on the Beam at the L'International Gymnix Senior Cup and took silver on Bars at the AGF Trophy in Baku.

But the crowning moment of Mizzen’s career thus far came when she tested herself against the world’s best gymnasts at the 2017 World Championships in Canada.
