Shahida takes out Women's Open in calisthenics
Brisbane Water Secondary College student Shahida Wenham, 15, has taken out the Women's Open at the Australian Freestyle Battle Titles.
The titles were held in Brisbane on July 13-14, with Shahida beating out a host of older more experience competitors to take the title.
Shahida trains six days a week with Central Coast Calisthenics at Umina PCYC.
Her coach Mr Chris Nixon said he was thrilled with the result.
"Shahida has put an amazing amount of hard work leading up to the competition.
"She was the youngest competitor amongst the women, and her strong background in gymnastics gave her the edge in the comp," Mr Nixon said.
Shahida is now in training to defend her title when the next Australian Freestyle Battle event takes place in Melbourne later this year.
