This week the Acapulco Open will be held in Mexico. It features a host of fabulous WAG gymnasts, including; Brenna Dowell (USA), Anna Dementyeva (RUS) and Ana Lago and Yessenia Estrada (MEX)
Another international elite gymnasts who will be in attendance at this meet is Australian gymnast Georgia Rose Brown. Georgia Rose was a World Team member in 2011, where she contributed on every event in qualifications and on uneven bars in team finals. She was named a team reserve at the London Games. A talented bar worker, Brown is known for her smooth swing on bars. She has also earned a reputation for her seemingly effortless grace on floor. Georgia Rose is tall and she trained in dance as a child, meaning she has become a fan favourite in Australia and beyond for her elegance and artistry. She is the kind of gymnast it is impossible to take an awkward photo of. Look out for her upgrades on vault and her beautiful bar and floor work at the meet!
We had a quick email chat with Georgia Rose before she departed for Mexico;
You are about to go and represent Australia at the Second Mexico Open. What are you expecting from that experience?
Mexico is another opportunity for international experience and a good chance to get out there and compete against world-class athletes. After all who doesn’t want to go to Acapulco! It will really help me get a good understanding of the international level.
I have heard you are very brainy (and busy with study at the moment)! What are you planning to study in the future?
I’d love to do a Chiropractic Degree but Gymnastics is my priority at the moment!
What is a normal day like for Georgia-Rose Brown?
Very much like any other gymnast! Gym – study – gym – sleep!
If you had to describe yourself in five words, what would they be?
Tall, Flexible, Elegant, Hard-working, determined
If your coach were asked to describe you, what do you think he/she would say?
I think Misha would say I was determined. Well I hope he would anyway!
What is the best thing gymnastics has given you?
I’ve always had a love for gymnastics from an early age. It’s given me the ability to go out and compete on a world stage in front of hundreds of people and stay focused as well as have fun. You need to be very disciplined as a gymnast so any opportunity to compete just adds further experience. The capability to commit to something no matter how hard it can get at times.
What is something gymnastics fans might not know about you?
I am both a New Zealand and Australian Citizen.
Good luck, Georgia!
