Leap Scholarship


Gymnastics NSW are pleased to announce the recipient of the LEAP Scholarship to Denmark is Rory Peters (Sydney Gymnastics Centre)

Rory was chosen for his ongoing commitment to gymnastics and for his outstanding leadership skills. This once in a lifetime opportunity will allow Rory to further his gymnastics knowledge by attending The International Academy, (INTAC) at the Academy of Physical Education in Ollerup, Denmark on a six-month scholarship.

Rory is a talented acrobat at SGAC, returning only recently from Nationals with a gold medal in the level six men’s pair event. Aside from training, he’s also an avid coach and judge who is passionate about the value of gymnastics to the wider community. For the past few years he has also been a long-standing member of the GNSW Senior Performance Team, performing nationally on the Sunshine Coast and the Hunter Valley but also internationally at the World Gym for Life Challenge in Vestfold (Norway).

Rory is most excited about expanding his experience, skills and passion for gymnastics as well as being able to immerse himself in the strong and diverse culture of Denmark.

Gymnastics NSW would like to congratulate Rory on his selection and we wish him the best of luck over in Denmark. If you would like to know more about the existing opportunities our LEAP program has to offer, head to www.leap.org.au  for more information!
