Georgia-Rose Brown Claims Bronze at Melbourne World Cup
The World Cup Gymnastics at Melbourne Arena had day one of Finals on Saturday 23, the Australian crowd were lucky enough to be able to witness Georgia-Rose Brown, Romi Brown and Chris Remkes.
The best story of the night for the Australian athletes was Georgia-Rose Brown where she was second last in the rotation to compete on the Uneven Bars. As always, the 173cm tall gymnast got the Bars raised and away she went.
A graceful routine, the loud cheering and a solid score that placed her in third position with just one more athlete to go. Her score was enough to keep her in that third position result in Australia's first 2019 Melbourne World cup medal.
Congratulations Georgia-Rose Brown, so well deserved.
Romi Brown wowed the crowd in her first Senior International Final on the Uneven Bars.
Romi Brown was the first in the rotation and what a start that was, she was definitely a crowd favourite and what a sensational debut she made.
She qualified in sixth place on Thursday evening and went one better in the Final and placed successfully at fifth. We are looking forward to seeing what else Romi Brown will do for Australian gymnastics.
Well done Romi Brown, Gymnastics Australia is very proud of you what you achieved.
Chris Remkes was our only male competitor across all three apparatus.
Remkes qualified eighth for his Floor routine on Thursday 21 which meant he just made it into the Final on Saturday 23.
He had a tough line up to face with the other countries performing such strong routines.
Remkes routine was full of positives with multiple stick landings and great floor work and he finished in the Final at seventh place.
Well done Chris and Gymnastics Australia look forward to seeing you in the Vault Final Friday 24.
We now look towards the second day of Finals with Chris Remkes on Vault, Mitchell Morgans on Parallel Bars, Morgans and Tyson on the High Bar, Emma Nedov and Elena Chipizubov on Beam and Nedov on floor!
Go Team Australia!
