Athlete of the Month – Brock Batty
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.
Brock first attended CYC in April 2016 and his natural aerial awareness was noticed straight away by the trampoline coaches.
Brock attended his first National Championships in 2017, coming away with 1 bronze, 1 silver and the national U11 Double-mini Title.
Since then Brock challenged himself, working hard on his execution, degree of difficulty, and time of flight, which is now a major part of trampolining.
Brock's work ethic towards his trampoline skills and strength resulted in a very impressive Nationals 2018 campaign.
Brock stepped up into the international stream, competing in Youth (11 - 14yo) international.
Competing against gymnasts three years older than him, and some twice his size, Brock held his own and showed the trampoline community how hard he has worked, performing some amazing, and high, routines!
Brock earned himself the Youth International Men's Trampoline National Title, and with three more years left in this age group it will be exciting to see how far Brock will go.
Everyone in the Victorian Gymnastics community is very proud of Brock’s achievements – especially his club coaches – and look forward to following his career.
