THREE Maffra Gymnastic Club members have been selected to represent Victoria at the national championships this week.

Chelsea Ikin (level five), Tess O’Toole (level seven) and Katelyn Henderson (level seven) were selected following trials in Bendigo and Melbourne in recent months.

The girls will head to the Gold Coast to compete in acrobatic tumbling on Sunday. They will flip and tumble down a 25-metre mat and need to finish with still and controlled landings.

Their coach Robyn Dowse will also travel with them, as she was also selected as one of the state team tumbling coaches.
