Biblina Shamuel was recently awarded fourth place, nationally in Level 7 at the Australian National Championships for Gymnastics.

We spoke to Bablina and her mum, Eileen, to find out more about this wonderful achievement.

Bablina shares with us her experience in gymnastics, starting from the age of six and competing in various club championships.

She is also an active member of her gymnastics club, coaching younger students in the sport. She, being in high school, shows the passion and drive that she has for gymnastics.

Her mum tells us, that supporting Bablina is important and says: "Parents have an important role in ensuring their kids' futures are safe and healthy, even if it means making other sacrifices for their children's commitments, as long as it keeps them occupied with safer things, such as sport."

Bablina spends nearly 16 hours per week practising and hopes to someday achieve higher levels in this field.

Bablina said "dedication is important and making time, it is never too late to start".

The SBS Assyrian team congratulates Bablina on this achievement and wishes her the best of success for future championships.
