Sam has dedicated themselves to their sport, recently placing as a top South Australian gymnast. Hear from Sam themselves, below.
“At the beginning of the year, I was selected as one of 10 girls to represent South Australia as a part of the Women’s Artistic Gymnastics state team. To be selected, your overall score from two trials is considered, and they invite the best gymnasts in South Australia to the tryouts.
Being on a state team was one of my long-term goals as a gymnast and it was exciting going away to the Border Challenge Competition. The team travelled and stayed together for 4 days in Queensland and while away we had the opportunity to compete against some of Australia’s best gymnasts. I competed twice, in both an individual and a team comp.
Overall the experience was amazing and it felt like the 8 years of dedication was paying off. My lovely coach and family travelled to QLD to support me and without them, I wouldn’t be able to achieve what I have.” ~ Sam Fletcher
