Congratulations to Rebecca Osborne of Year 9, who has received a nomination for the Hyundai Junior Sports Star as part of the RAC SportWest Awards 2019 to be held in February. This event recognises the top one or two athletes from State sporting organisations in WA.   She is up against the very best in WA from across all sports but the fact she has been nominated by her sporting organisation (Gymnastics WA) as a top junior international athlete here in WA is remarkable and something Kingsway is proud of.

Rebecca has had an amazing year. In April she attended the 2019 Suzuki World Cup in Tokyo, Japan, where she was placed 11th.  In May, she was the overall WA State Champion for Aerobic Gymnastics in her international Age Group 1 division winning Gold in the individual and trio event.  She then attended the 2019 Australian Gymnastic Championships at the end of May where she won the Silver in her Individual and Gold in her 1 Trio event.  From her individual performance at the championships, Rebecca was selected for the 2019/2020 Aerobic Gymnastics National Squad, the only WA athlete to be selected for this squad.   Rebecca has remained on the National Squad since she competed and won her first Nationals in 2014.
