YOU would think a gymnastics event would be reasonably secure when the weather turns sour, protected by four walls and a roof. But not even they were spared from nature’s fury when floodwater forced its way into Victoria Park Gymnastics and Trampoline Centre in Rockhampton.

The set-back was of little impediment for the staging of the CQ Trampoline Invitational Levels Competition held late last month however, with Emerald well represented with 13 gymnasts in levels from one to three.

“They have water through there a few times so I think they have got the flood preparation and clean-up process pretty down pat,” Emerald coach Sue Fehlhaber said.

She added the Emerald representatives should be “really pleased” with the effort they gave in a tough discipline to master.

“Trampoline can be a little unforgiving... if they put in an extra bounce it’s not scored,” Sue said.

“It’s just one of those things even in the higher levels.”

The Emerald club’s attention now turns to the Aerobatics State Qualifiers in Gladstone on May 7.
