With the 2017 World Cup starting on Wednesday the 22nd February, Teams from around the world have been rolling into Melbourne in preparation.
And on Monday Knox Gymnastics Club was lucky enough to host the Chinese National Team’s training session.
Thanks to our major revamp last year and the quick action of our head coach Qinghua Yang (a former international gymnast himself), we were able to offer ‘Knox’ when the Chinese Team (his former colleagues) called regarding a training venue.
This all happened very much last minute, so we put out a notice to club members about training session. Several members and staff jumped at the amazing opportunity to see the Chinese team train. It was an incredible experience to them to watch some of the world’s best train up close!
They had a full 3 hour training session, with the boys working on Pommel and Parallel Bar plus some tumbling, while the girls work on all apparatus including full floor routines.
