A determined performance places Miller in Rio mix

VIS gymnast Larrissa Miller produced a strong performance at the 2016 Australian Gymnastics Championships in Melbourne as she competes for the sole gymnastics place on the Rio Olympic team.

 

Miller recovered from her disappointment on the uneven bars on Saturday night, to put together a sensational routine to win gold on the floor. Miller performed a double arabian, a challenging skill with a half turn and two front flips in the air before landing, which contributed to her final score of 14.175.

 

Earlier in the Championships, Miller led a strong Victorian crew to the team gold medal in the senior women's artistic competition.

 

With just one woman to be given the nod for Rio, selectors now face an extremely difficult task of deciding who will be the nation’s best chance of making an Olympic final and ultimately winning a medal.

 

In the senior men’s individual all-around, VIS athlete Luke Wadsworth was crowned champion after winning on 167.295 points.
