Taupo gymnast, Ruth Whitinui is fortunate to have International coaches Professor Fabian Amor and his wife Jorgelina "Coki" Verri coaching her this year.
To meet her goals of representing New Zealand internationally and being in consideration for Olympic Games selection in 2016 Ruth has moved to Rotorua to be closer to her coaches and to enable her to train 30 hours a week - plus school.
Her workouts schedule at the moment is:
MONDAYS: 9:00-12:00 / 4:00-8:00
WEDNESDAYS: 9:00-12:00 / 4:00-8:00
FRIDAYS : 9:00-12:00 / 4:00-8:00
Around that Ruth study's by correspondence.
We plan to present Ruth in her first International Competition by September (AUSTRALIA) before NZ NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS in October in Auckland.
From there, after evaluating her achievements and results, we move forward preparing her 2015 Competitive Schedule building her up in a couple of WORLD CUP SERIES in EUROPE to our main goal that will be 2015 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS ( Trials for Rio-Olympics).
Wil Sport congratulates Ruth on her drive and commitment in her sport and wish her every success in reaching her dream of representing New Zealand at the Olympics.
We will keep you posted on her progress.
