    THERE is no need to wait for the Commonwealth Games to watch exciting acts of athletic excellence.

    Moyhu Gymnastics will host a come and try day on Wednesday from 4pm as part of the Queen’s Baton Relay celebrations at Apex Park.

    Wangaratta residents are invited to try their hand at balancing on a beam, jumping off a mini tramp and other exciting gymnastic skills.

    About 15 gymnasts will also show off skills they’ve learned while training at the club.

    Moyhu Gymnastics head coach Sophie Enders said although they had only just returned to their regular classes for the year, the gymnasts had already spent time designing their display.

    “It is a great opportunity for the kids to get out of the gym for our first event of the year,” she said.

    “They all have their favourite skills and because it’s not our usual competition sort of event they can come up with their own routine.

    “This gives them some ownership over coming up with their own display and making sure their favourite skills are ready to perform.”

    Ms Enders added gymnastics was a sport for everyone and the club always welcomed new participants.
