Could two of our amazing Vuly Athletes
be off to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro? Well, they're one step closer! Both Blake Gaudry
and Ty Swadling
will represent Australia’s best
at the 31st Trampoline World Championships in Denmark this November.
Both Blake and Ty competed at last year’s World Championships, but this year, the stakes are immense. They comprise our nation’s line-up of 4 returning males, and 3 debuting females, who hope that their experience and incredible talent can secure Australia an automatic place in the upcoming Olympic Games.
Vuly Athletes – Blake and Ty
Months of training lie ahead for these two accomplished Vuly Athletes – World Championships
The road to the World Championships is not an easy one. Blake and Ty have months of preparation ahead, even before they meet up with the entire Australian team in Sweden for a week-long training intensive before the event. Blake, for example, is heading to Portugal for the Loulé World Cup.
Both have seen success at the World Championships. In 2013, they won Bronze medals, against stiff competition, as part of the Men’s Team. This year, they’re hoping to bring that triumph to the Men’s Individual competition. Only a place in the top eight of solo trampolinists will automatically qualify you for…
Vuly Athletes – Road to Rio
The Olympic Games! The dream contest of athletes all over the world, and the peak of competitive sport. Blake is gunning for his second appearance at the Olympics, having competed at London 2012. Ty sadly missed out on the chance to participate in the previous Games due to injury, but he’s hungry to finally make his mark in the ultimate competition.
If our Vuly Athletes don’t make the top 8 at the World Championships (although we’re quietly confident that they will!), the Olympic Games Test Event will offer another chance for our champions to secure well-deserved places.
So congratulations once again to our Vuly Athletes, Ty Swadling and Blake Gaudry. We’ll keep you up to date on their progress at the World Championships, Rio and beyond.
