Congratulations to Australia's Aerobic Gymnastics athletes who recently challenged a world class field at the 2014 Suzuki World Cup in Japan.

Australia's Trampoline gymnasts take medals at Pacific Rim
The Australian Trampoline Gymnastics team has made a fantastic start to the 2014 Pacific Rim Championships in Vancouver with all three pairs taking medals in the synchronised events today.
In the senior competition South Australia’s Blake Gaudry and Newcastle-based Shaun Swadling qualified in fourth place for the final and then put in a strong performance to claim the bronze medal.
In the women’s junior event, Western Australia’s Abbie Watts and Jayden Cooney have been crowned 2014 Pacific Rim champions after performing three great routines to win gold.
The men’s junior pair of Tasmania’s Hugh McConnell and Sydney-based Dominic Clarke got off to a shaky start with McConnell falling on their second routine. However the duo recovered in the final to secure silver.
“I was particularly pleased with the way that each of the pairs composed themselves after preliminaries to capitalise on the finals opportunity — with medals being the result,” said Australian coach Ben Kelly.
In Men’s Artistic Gymnastics Australia’s Luke Wiwatowski has advanced to the Floor final after finishing fifth in qualifying with a score of 14.3. He will be joined by Jayden Bull who registered a score of 14.6 (5th) on the High Bar to move through to Saturday’s medal round.
Wiwatowski finished the day with an All Around score of 77.05 (14th) and teammate Michael Mercieca registered 75.1 (17th).
John Orozco (USA) took All Around gold with 87.2, Toshiya Ikejiri (Japan) silver on 85.05 and Yuto Murakami (Japan) bronze with 84.9. USA secured the team gold with Japan second and Canada third.
Australia had a good day in the junior Men’s Artistic Gymnastics event with Clay Stephens making the individual apparatus finals in Floor, Rings, Vault and Parallel Bars. Stephens had the highest qualifying score on vault with 14.15. Gabe O’Sullivan also moved through to the finals on Pommel Horse and Rings.
After the opening day of the Rhythmic Gymnastics competition the Australian team sits in fourth position having contested Ball and Hoop with Clubs and Ribbon to come.
All three gymnasts look set to qualify for individual apparatus finals with Jaelle Cohen ranked sixth for Ball and Danielle Prince and Taylor Tirahardjo ranked seventh and eighth for Hoop respectively.
Australia's Brown and Munteanu qualify for Pacific Rim finals
Australian Women's Artistic Gymnastics athletes Georgia-Rose Brown and Kiara Munteanu have qualified for individual apparatus finals at the 2014 Pacific Rim Championships in Vancouver.
Brown was ranked in sixth place on Uneven Bars with a score of 14.3 and qualified for the Beam final with 13.5. Munteanu is also set to contest the Uneven Bars final having scored 13.7 in the qualification round.
