Grace Schroder

Our young gymnast from Clarks Beach has been named a finalist in the 26th Annual College Sport Auckland Young Sportsperson of the Year Awards.

Grace Schroder, in Year 11, is representing us for Gymsports at the event.

Earlier this year, the rhythmic gymnast made the finals at the Pacific Rims Gymnastics Championships held in Washington State, USA. It was the first time in 10 years that New Zealand made the finals in this competition.

She has also competed this year in the Sofia Cup in Bulgaria, the Emerald Cup in Greece and, last month, in the Junior Commonwealth Gymnastics Competition in Namibia. There, Grace finished fifth overall and qualified for all four apparatus finals. Her performance helped the NZ Rhythmic Team to gain a bronze medal.

Grace has just been named ACG Strathallan’s Sportsperson of the year. Gill Ayliffe, our school Dean said Grace is a motivated student as well as a talented gymnast. “She works hard to keep up with school commitments as well as her heavy training schedule. Her level of commitment to her studies and to her sport is amazing. We are delighted to see her succeeding at such a high level. She always has a smile and deserves every success.”

Grace trains five times a week with Counties Manukau Gymnastics. Ultimately she hopes to represent New Zealand at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

The College Sport Auckland Young Sportsperson of the Year Award will be announced on 26 November
