“I feel a sense of pride and patriotism when the Australian flag is raised and Advance Australia Fair plays over the speakers when one of the Australian gymnasts wins an international medal. I’m happy that today I officially become an Australian.”

  1. My sincere congratulations to the Great Gymnastics Professional Peggy Liddick! I never met her in person. But she is an amazing coach ! That’s what are people saying around the World. But the biggest surprise for me was the time frame during which the Australian Government finally make a decision. Some other countries made it much faster in order to have a good coach or great athlete as soon as possible. Good luck, to a New Australian Lady, perfect Gymnastics coach and just a very nice woman. Honored Coach of Russia from USA
