If you see Tegen Cruickshanks cartwheeling through the air, she’s practising tricks for her favourite sport, gymnastics.
The Mooroopna Primary School Year 3 student has been practising her tumbles, cartwheels and handstands after doing gymnastics on and off for the past three years.
‘‘I started doing it again this year,’’ Tegen, eight, said.
The sport runs in the family — Tegen started gymnastics because her cousin did it and her younger sister also takes fun gym classes at the same venue.
Tegen said she did not really practise tricks at home with her sister.
While she did not have a specific favourite trick, Tegen said she enjoyed doing cartwheels, the trick she was practising during class at the moment.
‘‘They’re a little tricky,’’ she said.
Tegen said she trained every Thursday night at Jets Gymnastics in Mooroopna.
She was also heading to her first competition this month in Shepparton.
Tegen said she was ‘‘sort of’’ nervous about her first official competitive event.
She said she hoped to continue with gymnastics after watching a few of the events in the recent Commonwealth Games.
