The Mossman Gymnastics Club 2018 end of year display took spectators on a journey around the world on Sunday, 2 December. 

The event included all age groups of the club’s membership flipping and jumping to routines themed as placed from across the globe.

Routines features locations such as Hawaii, France, Rio de Janeiro, Japan, Australia Egypt, Jamaica, USA, and Africa.

Treasurer of the club, Prue Borzi, said the weeks of practice and rehearsal really paid off on the show.

“They’ve been rehearsing for the last four or five weeks while still doing their regular training as well,” she said. 

“It’s a chance for them to show the parents, friends, and family what skills they have been learning this year.”

Not only was the display a great success, all gymnasts received medals for their work with trophies awarded to the outstanding and most improved member of each group.

The display also bought the club a few steps closer to their fundraising goal that will allow them to purchase Pinjarra Place in Mossman.

“We are getting very close to being bale to purchase the building we are in at the moment,” Ms Borzi said.

“We’ve been fundraising since August this year and we are almost there.”

Despite the heat of the day, the event played through without a hitch.

“Everything went great,” Ms Borzi said.
