Australian Gymnast Wins Gold At The Commonwealth Games #Australian #Gymnast #Wins #Gold #Commonwealth #Games Welcome to RKM Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
Georgia Godwin is an artistic gymnast who is 24 years old. She won a bronze medal in the team event and a silver medal in the all-around at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
At the Australian Championships in 2013, Godwin took part in her first competition as an adult. She came in third overall, second on vault, fifth on uneven bars, first on floor exercise, and fourth on balancing beam.
She competed for Australia in the all-around event at the 2020 Summer Olympics and came in third place.
Godwin got a silver medal for coming in second place in the artistic team all-around event at the Commonwealth Games in 2022.
Meet Gwen and Calvin Godwin, the parents of Georgia Godwin
Godwin Godwin was born on October 28, 1997. She is an artistic gymnast.
Godwin’s father’s name is Calvin Godwin, and her mother’s name is Mary Godwin. At the same time, Gwen Godwin is the name of her mother.
When she was three, her parents bought her a trampoline, which started her on an unplanned path to becoming a gymnast.
Her parents signed her up for gymnastics lessons at a Gold Coast club because she liked to jump around. The rest is history.
From age 9 to 13, she lived with her mother in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. The Gold Coast, where her family lives, is about an hour’s drive from Brisbane.
How Did Georgia Godwin’s Ankle Get Hurt?
Godwin just won her second gold medal in as many days at the Commonwealth Games. She wants her achievements to show that gymnastics is a safe sport for kids to do.
She was upset after the competition because she had been thinking about not going to the Birmingham Games at all because it was taking her so long to get better after having double ankle surgery last year.
When she beat Laurie Denommee of Canada in the vault on a tiebreak, it showed that she made the right choice to compete.
Georgia said that the things she found out the year before had upset her, but she was hopeful that the sport was now going in the right direction.
She was very close to winning her third gold medal on the uneven bars, but she had to settle for silver because the reigning champion, Georgia-Mae Fenton of England, was better.
She said that the medals were a great bonus. “I just come to these contests to have fun and do my best,” she said.
Siblings and Family of Georgia Godwin
The Godwins are from Southport, Queensland, which is in Australia. On her mother’s side of the family, she comes from Japan.
She and her brother grew up together. In Georgia’s early years, she and her mom lived away from the rest of their family for almost four years.
She loved spending time with her parents and brother or sister. On her Instagram account, @georgia godwin, she has posted several pictures of her family.
Georgia said that after training with her mother every Saturday, she would pack up the car and drive back to the Gold Coast for the weekend.
“I liked having my dad and brother there, but those are the kinds of sacrifices you have to make,” she said.
