TWO Hot Shots Skipping Association members have skipped their way to the FISAC World Rope Skipping Championships in China.

Telea Annetts, 13, and Ella Robson, 12, have both jumped into the Australian team for rope skipping and have been competing from July 24 until August 2.

Both girls train four to five days a week with Hot Shots Skipping Association at Mount Cotton and have been working towards this for the past five years.

Head coach Taryn Hodgson said she was proud of the two Chisholm College students for their efforts.

“They have worked extremely hard and it’s a credit to their commitment and dedication to the team,” she said.

“Juggling school and sport can be difficult and both girls have managed this extremely well.

“Representing your country at any age is a privilege and an honour and these girls are true examples of what you can achieve with hard work, focus and commitment.”

Ella Robson was looking forward to experiencing the culture and meeting new people.
