Introducing Beau. Beau loves his sport and finds his happiest moments in his career to be during competition.
- What do you love most about gymnastics?
The thing I love most about my sport is, the fun of it! Flipping and twisting through the air, sticking landings, challenging and connecting with my teammates, and showing off my new skills.
- Where and how often do you train?
I train 24 hours a week. Monday through Saturday, I train three and a half hours, and on Tuesday and Thursday morning, I train for an hour and thirty minutes.
- What are your three main goals?
My three goals in my gymnastics career are:
Make it to the Olympics or Commonwealth games,
Get a skill of mine into the code of points,
Place top three in an apparatus final or all-around final at Commonwealth games or Olympics.
- What skills do you want to learn this summer?
The skills I want to learn are my bonuses in my routines. I have some already, I just need, Pbars: Felge, back-uprise-to-handstand, Pommel: Russian, Ring: Yamawaki, Dislocate through handstand.
If I had to choose one singular skills, I would choose C Moy on parallel bars.

- Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
My good friend, Blair Stewart. He is a Canberran gymnast who always gives me tips on my skills and gives his time to other athletes. He has always been nice and graduated from my school a few years ago.

My family, gymnastics, and my dog, Dulcie. She’s an old Kelpie that we’ve had for a few years. She’s very friendly and a little timid.
