REDLANDS athletes leaped and tumbled their way to success in artistic gymnastics over the weekend.
Nearly 250 senior gymnasts sprang into action last weekend for the 2019 South East Queensland Artistic Gymnastics Senior Regional Championships held at Gold Coast Gymnastics.
YMCA Victoria Point athletes Keeley Wilson and Charlie Banks dominated in the Level 7 Under 13 category, placing first and third respectively.
Kayla Geros won her Level 8 category, while Kirsten Burger placed third in the Level 9 Open category.
Gymnastics Queensland chief Kym Dowdell said athletes from 27 clubs competed in the hope of qualifying for the state championships being held in April.
"The Senior Regional Championships are a fantastic event with gymnasts set to show their strength, skill and agility in a variety of disciplines," Ms Dowdell said.
"Strong competition was certainly on the cards but meets like this one also give gymnasts the opportunity to experience the formal competition environment and learn from their peers.
"Gymnasts worked hard to qualify for the Senior State Championships which will be held in Brisbane (in April), so their hard work was certainly on show at this meet."
The 162 female gymnasts demonstrated complex routines on the floor, vault, uneven bars and beam, while 87 male gymnasts competed in floor, vault, horizontal bar, parallel bars, rings and pommel horse.
The men's and women's Artistic Gymnastics Senior State Championships will be held from April 11 to 14 at Sleeman Sports Complex in Chandler.
