Gymnasts ready to floor judges
THEIR splits are sublime and tumbles turn heads, these aerobic gymnasts are bringing their best to the floor.
Nine girls from MyDynamics Aerobic Gymnastics at Buderim are preparing for the national championships next month.
MyDynamics Aerobic Gymnastics owner and operator Eileen Fowler said the girls, aged eight to 15, were selected to represent Queensland after placing in the top two at the state championships.
Ms Fowler said the Aerobic Gymnastics National Championships would be held over three days in Brisbane and allowed the girls to show off their aerobic dance and gymnastics floor skills to upbeat music.
"We train a minimum of seven hours a week and they do a lot of strength work within that and a lot of flexibility and acrobatic tumbling," she said.
One of the team members, Cassidy Elphinstone, 14, choreographed the routine.
"I'm really proud of them, they're fantastic and they've done it all themselves," Ms Fowler said. "Four have been to nationals before...they have all worked really hard and deserve to be there."
