Last night I competed in the Janssen Fritsen Open in Tasmania. I was very happy with myself sticking all-round and ended up winning the competition.
We have one more competition tomorrow which is a super team Dreamlight comp!

Giant leap from Sochi: Olympic snowboarder Stephanie Magiros in Hobart for gymnastics competition
Winter olympian Stephanie Magrios is competing against the nation’s best gymnast at the Kingborough Gymnastics Centre this week.
OLYMPIC snowboarder Stephanie Magiros is competing with 300 of Australia’s top gymnasts at the Janssen Fritsen Open championship at the Kingborough Gymnastics Centre this week.
The multi-talented 150cm-tall athlete is competing with her club the New South Wales Academy of Gymnastics.
Ms Magiros, 23, said “it was pretty unreal” when she made it to the snowboard half-pike semi-final at the Sochi Winter Olympics in February.
“I finished 18th after I made a top 20 goal for myself — I was very happy with myself,” she said.
Magiros was named the all-round winner in the multi-apparatus event yesterday, which included gymnastics on vault, bars, beam and floor.

The elite athlete said she maintained her energy levels with a healthy diet of chicken salads and breakfast smoothies of bananas, protein powder, frozen fruit and yoghurt.
Magiros said she had travelled all over the world with her snowboarding but had never been to Tasmania.
“To come to a new place in Australia — I’m very excited.”
