Australia has chosen a strong six-member team. Let’s get to know them a little better.

She has competed in two world championships and helped the Australian women secure a silver medal at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.

Emily Little (WA)

Little has been a member of the Australian senior national team for four years. She won a gold medal at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in the team women's artistic gymnastic events. She was chosen to represent Australia at the 2012 London Olympics.

Larissa Miller (VIC)

Larissa Miller specialises on the Uneven Bars and Floor Exercise.

She made her Australian Senior National Championship debut in 2008 and had been part of the Australian team ever since.

Rianna Mizzen (QLD)

Rianna started gymnastics at the age of five and has always dreamed of representing Australia at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. She became national bars champion in 2015.

Emma Jane Nedov (NSW)

A member of the Australian team since 2014, competing in the World Artistic Gymnastics Championships. 

Emily Whitehead (VIC)

Junior National Champion in 2014 and 2015, and represented Australia in the 2014 Rim Championships. 2016 is her first year competing for Australia as a senior international.

What's next for the WAGs?

The team will compete in the 2016 Pacific Rim Championships in the USA from April 8 to 10, before flying on to Rio de Janeiro for the Olympic Test Event, the final qualifiers for the 2016 Olympic Games.

“The entire Senior National Squad and their coaches have been working together tirelessly since November, to ensure we can put the strongest team forward to secure Olympic selection in Rio in April,” Mark Rendell, Gymnastics Australia CEO said.

The WAG Olympic Test Event will be held from April 16 to 18 in the Olympic host city.

Alexandra Eade (Vic) and Kiara Munteanu (VIC) were named as non-travelling reserves.
