Godwin, Tsukahara Win Australian Nationals
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Georgia Godwin and Naoya Tsukahara won the senior all-around titles Friday as the Australian championships continued in Melbourne.

Godwin, the 2010 and 2011 junior champion, won the all-around title by more than 3 points over defending champion Madelaine Leydin. Kiara Munteanu won the bronze medal.

Godwin said she was thrilled with the gold medal, after only recently returning to full training since an injury this spring.

"This competition was the first time that I have successfully completed all of my routines twice in a row, so I was pretty happy with that,” Godwin said. "I have been dealing with injuries and came up a bit sore this morning, so coming into tonight I just wanted to try my hardest and do my best. It is great that I was able to stick all my routines and winning was the icing on the cake."

The competition also serves as Australia's trials for this summer's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Georgia-Rose Brown, the top qualifier from Wednesday's qualification, scratched the competition after balance beam. She will petition to the Commonwealth Games team, coach Peggy Liddick told IG.

"Georgia-Rose strained her ankle in floor 30-second touch (warm-up), so we withdrew her as a precaution," she said. "The doctors are not too worried about her. She will put in an injury petition."

Alexandra Eade, who competed three events on Wednesday, also did not finish the competition.

"Alexandra missed a foot on a beam dismount, also in the warm-up," Liddick said. "She made a good beam routine, then just could not muster a floor routine, so again, for safety sake, stopped her floor routine."

Several veterans competed as specialists and impressed, improving their scores. Lauren Mitchell, Australia's most decorated gymnast, earned 15.550 on balance beam. Larrissa Miller earned 15.475 on uneven bars, and 2008 Olympian Olivia Vivian scored 14.650 on the event.

"I was pleasde with some brilliant performances from our veterans and look forward to the next camp," Liddick said.

In the men's competition, Tsukahara won his fifth title in six years. Tsukahara had the top scores on three of the events and won by nearly 5 points over Michael Mercieca.

Luke Wiwatowski, who was second to Tsukahara after qualification, was unable to finish the competition after injuring his foot on vault.

Alysha Djuric won the women's junior title over Emily Whitehead and Darcy Norman.

The competition also served as the New Zealand national championships. Mackenzie Slee and Misha Koudinov were crowned as senior champions.

Competition concludes Sunday with the apparatus finals.
