  1. Hi Rick,

    Congratulations Ireland. It is always great to see gymnastics participation growing nearly everywhere!
    My home state of Queensland, AUS has about the same population as Ireland (approx. 5M) and has just had another year of growth at 9%, reaching 54,800 registered club gymnasts. This was among more than 75,000 itinerant participants and an outreach to over 200,000 persons. Gymnastics in QLD is the third most popular sport for young people (behind swimming & soccer). We do have a way to go to build our adult and seniors participation!
    I am the co-author of the history of gymnastics in Queensland and we will launch an initial draft during our 70th official year in 2019. I will keep you posted.

    Kind regards,
    Trevor Dowdell – Board member – Gymnastics queensland
