In the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics competition, the team of Chloe Jackson-Brown, Rachel Laval, Lauren Pengelly, and Georgia Keane won the gold medal, whilst the team of Tiana Odessa, Rachael Graham and Jaid Otrupcek took home the silver medal.

In the Individual All-Around competition, Rachel Laval was crowned the Overall Champion with Tiana taking the silver medal and Lauren the bronze.  The girls picked up a host of medals in Apparatus Final too, so that at the end of the competition, Australia sat fifth on the medal tally with 12 gold, 14 silver and seven bronze, for a total of 33 medals.

Gymnastics Australia wishes to congratulate all athletes and officials on a successful tour of New Zealand, where the team wore the Australian colours with pride both on and off the competition floor.
