Gymnastics coach selected for world competition

A Umina Beach PCYC gymnastics coach has been selected for the Australian team to perform in the 16th World Gymnaestrada in Dornbirn, Austria, in July.

Lachlan Tolhurst will join with a contingent of Australian gymnasts to take part in the non-competitive event which is held every four years like the Olympics.

This year's Gymnaestrada is expected to see 25,000 gymnasts from more than 60 nations descend on Dornbirn.

The emphasis of the event is on performance, with the Gymnaestrada being a friendly international event that celebrates the artistry, dedication and technique of the sport over traditional competition.

According to Lachlan's mother Judy, the Gymnaestrada will be a highlight of a phenomenal year for Lachlan, who has also been awarded a scholarship to continue his studies in Europe following the event.

"After Lachlan has been to Gymnaestrada, he will holiday in Europe and then travel to Denmark to take up a leadership scholarship at Ollerup, a Danish Physical Education School, where he will study for 18 weeks," Ms Tolhurst said.

"At the college, he will study Danish as well as other subjects and each afternoon work on his coaching skills.

"When he returns, the knowledge he will bring back for the gymnastics students at Umina Beach PCYC will be wonderful and will benefit the program.

"Lachlan has been a gymnastics coach at the club for almost four years and has seen the program grow from less than 30 students to almost 400 gymnasts," she said.
