South Canterbury Gym Sport’s Sienna Wright won the Step 3 overall title at the South Island gymnastic championships.

Timaru gymnast Sienna Wright is only small but could have a big future.

The 9-year-old won the step 3 under title at the South Island Gymnastics Championships in Timaru from 31 other gymnasts.

Wright was the best on the beam, finished fourth on the bar, fifth on the floor and eighth on the vault for a total of 55.5 points.

South Canterbury Gymsports coach Sally Hart said it was no easy feat.

“There were a number of much bigger clubs, that train a lot more hours than we do, so Sienna did exceptionally well.”

Wright started gym at the age of four, and won the first competition she went in, giving her the sweet taste of success.

Her mother Tammy Wright said she really enjoyed both training and competition.

“I think Sienna has her dad’s (Javas) strength and my flexibility.

“She is also really dedicated to the sport.”

Wright said when given something new to do, Sienna would practice hard at home.

Max Whitlock is planning an explosive return to action at the World Championships in Montreal next month with a pair of new routines he vows will leave his Olympic heroics in the shade.

The 24-year-old has taken time out from major competition since his historic success in Rio, where he won gold medals in both the pommel and floor apparatus.

But besides a brief break to get married, Whitlock has spent months shut away in his South Essex club in Basildon working on upgrading those winning performances in order to keep his rivals at bay.

Campbell River lawyer and massage therapist team up to combine two fitness disciplines into one

Josh Nobleman came to town to be a lawyer.

“I’ve just started my career and it’s super exciting,” he says, “but I found that I need something to balance that out. A lot of what I do is litigation – so it’s basically a form of fighting – and my interest in Ju-Jitsu is just too similar to that, in some ways. I don’t need more fighting in my life, but I do need a physical outlet to relieve some of my stress.”

Nobleman was into gymnastics in his youth, he says, “but there’s a reason you don’t see too many old gymnasts. It’s hard on the body.”

A Dundee gymnastics school’s bid to move to a new studio and “guarantee its future” has been rejected by city council officers.

Planning chiefs have turned down Salto Gymnastics and Trampoline Club’s dream of creating a new base in a vacant unit at the Faraday Business Centre at Dryburgh Industrial estate.

The club wanted to create a full-time gymnasium, including a fitness suite and a cafe in the bullding, which has been empty since 2015.

Council officers refused the application because it is contrary to the local development plan.

The rejection comes just weeks after Edinburgh firm Ryze’s plans to create a “jumper’s paradise” in Claverhouse Industrial Estate were rejected for similar reasons.

MOUNT OLIVE — Though most of Carley Anderson’s friends have heard her say, “I can’t, I have gymnastics,” whenever a fun activity is planned, almost none have actually seen her compete.

That may change soon.

Carley and her older sister Aliyah Anderson are two of the founding members of Mount Olive High School’s gymnastics team. The Marauders debut today in a dual meet at Ridgewood, their first chance to fly in new black leotards trimmed with red and silver swirls.

Three of the five Mount Olive girls — Carley Anderson, freshman Hannah Scott and sophomore Brittany Wilder — compete in USA Gymnastics at Northern Elite in Flanders. Aliyah Anderson and Vileen Singh are former gymnasts, working their way back into the complex sport.

“I’ve been working my butt off trying to get back,” said Singh, a junior who was USAG Level 7 or 8, but has been out of the gym for five years.


Great River Gymnastics moved from their downtown location to a larger facility to accommodate a wider

FULTON, Ill. — Justin and Jessica Thoms purchased Great River Gymnastics in May 2016. At the time, the facility was fairly small. There was 900 square feet of space and only tumbling classes were offered.

Less than 18 months later, the facility has moved to a new location, added more classes and brought new coaches in to help with courses.

According to Justin Thoms, classes began to fill quickly after he and Jessica began offering the tumbling classes.

 “With the hiring of a few amazing coaches to join the team, we quickly ran out of room at our previous location in downtown Fulton,” Thoms said.
In late 2016, the Thoms began looking to other options in the area, and later approached the city of Fulton as prospective buyers for land within the industrial park. The sale was approved in December, and the process of building a new facility and moving operations out of the old Royal Theatre building began.



CHICAGO (Sept. 7, 2017) – U.S. Women’s National Team head coach Jill Ellis has named 22 players to the roster for two matches against New Zealand, taking place Sept. 15 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo. (8 pm MT on ESPN2) and on Sept. 19 at Nippert Stadium in Cincinnati (7:30 ET on FS1). Ellis will name 18 players to suit up for each of the two matches.

“We are looking forward to getting to Denver and having a couple of days together prepping for our first New Zealand match,” Ellis said. “With only six matches left in 2017, we want to take advantage of the time we have together and finish the year with solid performances. New Zealand, South Korea, and Canada all present different challenges, and these games will round out one of the most competitive schedules the WNT program has played in a calendar year.”

The former L.P. Hill Elementary School is now home to the Strawberry Mansion Police Athletic League Center at 3133 Ridge Ave.

The new PAL Center was three years in the making and made possible through a $1 million renovation of the defunct school. About 400 children from the area can now use the center’s academic and athletic programs that include basketball, softball, gymnastics, chess, tutoring and computer education.

L.P. Hill was one of more than 20 schools closed by the School District of Philadelphia in 2013 in order to help close the district’s budget gap.

 The Strawberry Mansion Community Association was instrumental in finding an alternative for the site that would benefit the children in the community, according to a news release.

“Schools are the heart of any neighborhood, and when one closes it tears a hole in the community,” Council President Darrell Clarke, whose 5th District includes Strawberry Mansion, said during the opening celebration of the center that was held on Thursday. Today, thanks to the people of Strawberry Mansion, the Police Athletic League, and private organizations that stepped to the plate, this community is healing.”
