Cooroy gymnast, Finlay Jones, competed in the South East Queensland Regional Championship on Saturday 2nd April held at Brisbane Grammar School. Gymnasts from Gladstone to the Gold Coast took part in the major competition to level test and qualify for the Queensland Senior State Championships.
Finlay competed on all six apparatus in the level 7 open division where he placed 3rd on High Bar, 3rd on Pommel Horse and 10th all around. Cooroy Gymnastics Club head coach, Jeff Ferrer, was very pleased with the results and will work closely with Finlay over the next fortnight to refine some elements in preparation for Queensland State Championships.
The Cooroy Gymnastics Club now has four men’s gymnastics coaches and boasts a boys program that consists of 100 plus boys training weekly. Cooroy has been focusing on building its boys program for the last year and continues to see a large number of boys still coming on board.
