Georgia-Rose Brown

                                                                  
      

An excellent 2014 saw Georgia-Rose primed to be one of Australia's favourite gymnast. 

Strong overall performances at the Nadia Comaneci International Invitational – an event where she was third overall in the All around, and first in the team competition – as well as the Pacific Rim Championships where she placed third overall on the Uneven Bars, saw Brown rewarded with selection in the Commonwealth Games team in Glasgow in 2014. 

Georgia competed in her second World Championships in Nanning, China in 2014 as a member of the Australian team which claimed seventh place in the team final. She also competed in the All around final, finishing 21st position.

Georgia-Rose was selected as a travelling reserve for the London 2012 Olympic Games and won team silver at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Although she missed the Australian Championships in 2015, Brown returned in 2016 where she placed 2nd after Rianna Mizzen. Georgia has made a strong start to 2017 with international competition returning home with a bronze on bars at both the AGF Trophy and the Doha World Cup.

Georgia-Rose Brown trains at the National Centre of Excellence in Melbourne coached temporarily by Peggy Liddick. Brown is aiming to represent Australia at her second Commonwealth Games in 2018.
