Athlete of the Month - Isla Russell
Gymnastics Victoria are proud of having so many talented athletes across the State. We will be featuring Athlete of the Month profiles – you can nominate an athlete to be featured by clicking here.
Isla is a gymnast from MYC Gymnastics who has been nominated for Athlete of the Month after demonstrating fantastic leadership skills at the Border Challenge last month. Isla attended the Border Challenge competition as part of the State Team for Level 9.
Isla was an outstanding leader of the group whose behaviour, sportsmanship, team spirit and overall leadership was second to none. All of the athletes looked up to her throughout the trip and she was an absolute delight to have as one of the senior athletes. She also helped the Level 9 team secure the Silver Medal, a great result!
As well as being a fantastic gymnast, Isla is also a phenomenal role model for younger gymnasts and an inspiration to all of the Border Challenge Team.
Isla’s positive attitude and leadership skills make her the perfect Gymnastics Victoria Athlete of the Month!
