THE Emerald Gymnastics and Trampoline Club's end-of-year display recognised the talent in the club as more than 50 gymnasts took part.

The display was held on Saturday and received a great turnout as the gym was packed with families and friends.

Head coach Sue Fehlhaber said the display went well and she was pleased to see how many came to support it.

"The kids performed really well," Fehlhaber said. "The coaches were very pleased with how they performed."

Each gymnast was awarded a participation certificate and there were also awards that recognised Beginner of the Year, Most Improved, Club Champion and Champion of Champions in the four divisions.

Olivia Corkill received the Encouragement Award, Isabel Fehlhaber was named Coach of the Year, and for all her hard work throughout the year, Michelle Smith was awarded the Club Person of the Year.
