Ruth has returned from the 2013 National Gymnastics Championships.

Ruth's results were:

Placings for Womens Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) Step 9:

  • Gold Medal for Team (Waikato)
  • Gold Medal on Beam
  • Gold Medal on Vault
  • Bronze Medal Uneven Bars
  • Bronze Medal for Overall Placing
  • Fourth on Floor

While her family and friends and team members are very proud of her results, Ruth is quietly content and not in any hurry to announce her success. She is more interested in learning what is required in the next step - Step 10 and is looking forward to fast tracking to the international level which is after Step 10.

If circumstances allow, she is very keen to move to Rotorua where her training is already planned to be more intense and comprehensive. Her coaches are very pleased with her potential and are interested in taking her to the next phase of her gymnastics, which is international competition.
