LOCAL gymnasts bounced their way into Melbourne earlier this month as they took part in the Australia Gymnastics Championships.
While neither Jamison McFadden or Latisha Painter came out on top — they did themselves proud against the best gymnasts Australia has to offer.
McFadden ranked 18th in the national level six tumbling trampoline event with a score of 53.9 — the fourth highest score from a Victorian.
Meanwhile, Painter finished third in the qualifying event for the senior international women’s event with a score of 20.2 — although she did not compete in the final.
Both have now become veterans of the national championships after competing on several occasions in the past.
