A huge congratulations to local Petersham superstar, Ariadna Diaz for her outstanding gymnastics win at a national level back in May.

Travelling from the Inner West all the way to the Gold Coast, Queensland, Ariadna represented New South Wales in the 2022 Australian Gymnastics Championships specialising in rhythmic gymnastics at the sub-junior level for ages 10 - 11 years old.

The Australian Gymnastics Championships are the height of competition for gymnasts in Australia, attracting the most elite athletes from all around the country.

This year, Ariadna and her team competed in the rhythmic categories of free-hand, hoop, ball, and clubs, showing off an exceptional set of skills.

The New South Wales team overall bested their friendly inter-state opponents from Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia and secured first place, winning their competition.

Go Ariadna for taking home the gold for New South Wales and representing Petersham!
