Australia's Rianna Mizzen told IG she hopes for continued success on uneven bars at the FIG World Cup of Melbourne on February 22-25.
Mizzen is the reigning Australian national champion on uneven bars and won the event at the 2016 FIG World Challenge Cup of Anadia, Portugal. The event is the first of the FIG World Cup season.
"The only apparatus I will be competing on in Melbourne is uneven bars, so I have a few specific goals that I am really hoping to achieve," said Mizzen, the 2016 Australian national all-around champion. "I am going to try and compete my new routine in Melbourne, which has a 0.5 higher start value. It's the first time I'll compete it, so I'm really hoping to hit."
Mizzen said she hopes Melbourne kicks off a successful season on the World Cup circuit.
"I want to do more World Cup competitions this year, so I'll use the Melbourne competition to get more experience of the format," she said.
