    WAG Australian WAG

    Hi everyone! I am quite a tall gymnast having trouble with 2 glide swing connection in lvl 4 WAG (Australia). I was wondering if I am able to do a straddle instead of pike… or do I have to pike.

    Where would I buy metal-bar gloves? (Australia)

    Usually the girls just use gloves supplied by the gym, but now each girl needs their own. GMdirect is my usual go-to but they are sold out until mid July. Are they just the sort of white cotton glove you would use for handling old books? Or are they special in some way? I am getting a...

    WAG Mihai Brestyan leaving for Australia?!?

    i just saw that he has been confirmed to coach Australia's national team. I'm guessing that the gym won't stay open for long, but did he comment either way on the status of the gym?
