Ella Chapman

I started Rhythmic Gymnastics when I was 9, but before that I did ballet, dance and artistic gymnastics. A family friend introduced me to the sport, and I’ve loved it ever since. It felt like a perfect fit for me, a balance between grace and athleticism. One of my favourite and most memorable experiences was competing in Maui in 2017 with some of my closest friends. Competing in Senior International has been a very challenging but refreshing experience and has helped me to improve and develop my skills, strength and confidence as an athlete. My goals for the future are to represent Australia at an international competition and to later become a coach and help other gymnasts to grow and improve.
