AUSTRALIAN WAG TEAM ANNNOUNCED




For Commonwealth Games.  Thanks for the tip off anonymous.  This here was announced at the Australian Sports Commission site.

Women’s
Georgia Bonora (VIS – AIS Camp based), Mary-Anne Monckton (AIS), Ashleigh Brennan (VIS), Lauren Mitchell (WAIS – AIS Camp based), Emily Little (WAIS – AIS Camp based).
Non travelling reserves:
Shona Morgan (VIS – AIS Camp based), Georgia Wheeler (VIS - AIS Camp based)
The following girls together with the Commonwealth Games team will go into camp on 12th September.  There will be a selection trial on 17th & 18th September for the World Championship team.
Emma Dennis (Waverley Gymnastics Club), Britt Greeley (VIS – AIS Camp based), Georgia Simpson (WAIS), Larrissa Miller (Morton Bay College – AIS Camp based), Natasha Hammann (SASI).
 It looks like a solid team has been picked, and I am very happy to see Mary- Anne Monckton in there as I thought she was a reserve.  I am, on the other hand, not too surprised to see that Larissa Miller wasn't named.  Though a lovely gymnast, she struggled A LOT at Pac Rims this year and seems to be having both growth and strength issues.  She needs some time to adjust.  Perhaps by Worlds selection, she will be ready to make another run at the team.
Here's hoping Australia can stay healthy and whip some Queen- bowing butt at the Commonwealth Games.  They'll just have to get past Great Britain first......
