Capalaba's Industrie 1 takes out most medals at FISAF Australia sports aerobics event

ABOUT 900 students from clubs and schools took part in a sports aerobics event on the Gold Coast on the weekend.

Capalaba's Industrie 1 Sport Aerobics club won the most medals at the event taking home 29 first place medals, eight second place and four third place medals.

A club spokeswoman said head coaches Penny McKinlay and Lucy Goddard and their coaching staff were very proud.

"The athletes train multiple times a week on skill, fitness and their routines," she said.

Among the club's athletes was Isabella Van Wijk who represented Australia at last year's World Championships.

Van Wijk won the Junior International Individual event.

She also won first place in the Junior International Trio category with Baylee Caruso and Ellah Skinner.

Redlands schools that took part - some for the first time - were Ormiston College, Bayview State School, St Lukes Primary, Star of the Sea Primary and St Mary Mackillop Primary.

Bayview State School teacher Olivia Irwin said the school's aerobics teams had competed in their first Gold Coast Super Series competition.

"The event was well organised, fun and gave children an opportunity to showcase what they have worked so hard on over the past 10 weeks," Ms Irwin said.

The competition organised by FISAF Australia was the first Super Series events in Queensland, one of four to be held around Australia this year.

FISAF Australia event manager Jade Moore said the event had exceeded expectations.

"We were especially delighted to welcome more schools to the event than ever before, many from the Redlands," Moore said.

"The athletes put in so much effort to prepare for the competitions and the event was very exciting for all."

The event was held ahead of the state championships on June 22 and 23 and the national championships at Chandler in August.
