In early May, Rebecca Osborne of Year 5 took part in trials held by Gymnastics Australia for the ANAC International Championships which will be held at the end of July in San Diego, USA. Rebecca was successful in her trial and has been selected into the Australia Aerobics Team. Rebecca was the only athlete within Australia in her age group to qualify and be selected. This will be Rebecca’s first international tour representing Australia and she is really excited and looking forward to the experience. She is the youngest member of the team with the next youngest being in the Age Group 2 (15-17 years) category.
Rebecca trains at Spirit Gymsports in their Aerobic Gymnastics programme. Her training programme is fairly demanding, requiring her to get up at 5.00am on several mornings a week so she can travel down to Leederville to start training at 6.00am alongside her older sister Olivia who is also an Aerobic Gymnast. Her next challenge is to get to school on time.
The Kingsway Christian College community is extremely proud of Rebecca's achievement and wishes her well in the July Championships.
