NSW Academy of Gymnastics achieves top-class wins

THE NSW Academy of Gymnastics at Miranda has dominated the sport in boys', girls', men's and women's events last year.

The academy, run by experienced coach Bill Parsons and his team of dedicated coaches, has again shown as one of the top clubs in NSW and Australia.

Parsons said 2014 was another successful year.

Long-time club member Elise Baxter, who started at the academy when just three, won many competitions at state and national level and also received one of the sport's highest awards, the NSW Blues Award presented by the NSW Combined Independent Schools.

And late last year the club went to Singapore with 35 male and female gymnasts and returned with a swag of medals.

The NSW Academy finished first overall in the women's artistic gymnastics competition.

The competitors were up against the very best, Parsons said.

"We are very proud of our gymnasts and are glad to have them back in the gym."

Top-class performances across many disciplines were produced by Elise Baxter, Stephanie Magiros, Callum Muir, Nicholas Childs, Bailey Nicolai, Heidi Thornley, Shelley-Lee Doyle, Sienna Russ, Mai-Ling Phung, Lily Sharpe, Belinda Groth, Jaymi Aronowitz, Amelia Eshman, Sage Anderson, Tess Anderson and Kiara Wark.

Does Sutherland Shire have the best gymnasts?
