James Bacuti Excels on World Stage
GACT would like to congratulate our very own James Bacueti on his competition at World Championships in Stuttgart, Germany over the weekend. After being selected for his first World Championships team, James has stood up and competed Pommel, Floor and Vault
James only narrowly missed Vault finals and finished 11th in the world.
Congratulations to James and Southern Canberra Gymnastics on an amazing accomplishment.
Tyson Bull claimed a place in the Horizontal Bar final and has earnt an Olympic quota spot allocation by qualifying seventh in a field of 199 gymnasts at the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Stuttgart, Germany.
Bull excelled on his preferred apparatus, eventually leading a three-way tie on 14.366 due to his superior execution score.
GA High Performance Director, Andrew Logan praised the overall performance of the MAG team.
“The MAG team performed incredibly well today and while we didn’t get the All-Around quota spot we had hoped to, claiming an apparatus finals place with Tyson is a brilliant result for him and the work everyone has put in to create such a great atmosphere in the team,” Logan said.
“James performed exceptionally well on debut, and so did Gabriel. It was a tougher day for Mitch and Mike, but they will get another chance at a Tokyo 2020 Olympics quota spot, so they still have that to focus on.
“Overall the guys did a great job and they can take away a lot of positives from the competition.”
Bull now begins preparation for the Horizontal Bar final which will be shown live on Fox Sports and Kayo on Sunday 13 October, 22:00-02:10 AEDT.
