2018 Austrian Future Cup
In late November the Junior National Team competed in Linz, Austria in the Future Cup.
Nick Matthews (SA), Ruben Chitters (Dolphin, VIC), Josh Walker (VIC HPC), Marcus Casamento (VIC HPC), Calvin Currie (QLD HPC) and coaches were Dion Pocklington (VIC HPC) & Nedal Alyousef (Dolphin, VIC).
The competition was an incredibly high standard with 27 teams from across the world participating. For all of our boys it was their first international competition and we couldn’t be more proud of how they performed and how well they represented Australia. The team placed 6th out of the 27 teams and also achieved some fantastic individual highlights as well.
Ruben and Nick placed 5th and 6th All Around respectively. Ruben placed 2nd on High Bar and Marcus 2nd on Floor.
The boys have all come away from the experience incredibly motivated and excited about the future. The tour has become a highlight for GA junior men’s teams since 2010 and we wish to acknowledge and the thank members of the Linz AUT Gymnastics program for their hospitality; in particular Helmut & Margot Kranzlmueller and Siegfried and Barbara Wuestemann.
