Canberra’s own Jazzy Jumpers Rope Skipping Club, based in Amaroo, have victoriously returned from the World Jump Rope Championships held in Orlando, Florida, USA last month.

Eighteen Jazzy Jumper athletes along with their families and supporters travelled to Orlando last month to compete in a number of different events in the weeklong competition run by World Jump Rope Federation. The Jazzy Jumpers made their mark on the International stage and brought home 21 medals in total.

Most athletes competed in individual and team events ranging from speed (how many steps you do in 30 seconds and 3 minutes) to freestyle (including gymnastic movements choreographed to music whilst skipping) and double dutch (using two ropes at once and undertaking both speed and freestyle events).

The Juniors in the Club had some stand out performances winning GOLD in the following events:

  • Lilly Pickering (9Y/O) - Single Rope Freestyle - Junior Novice division 10 years &under.
  • Maverick Larkin & Tilly White (10Y/O) - Single Rope Freestyle Pair - Junior division 10 years & under.
  • Lilly Pickering and Lucy Ovington – Chinese Wheel -Junior division 10 years & under
  • MaverickLarkin&LucyOvington–DoubleUnders-Juniordivision10years&under
  • MaverickLarkin,LucyOvington,TillyWhyteandLillyPickering-SingleRopeFreestyleTeam - Junior Mixed 10 years & under

Senior skippers Kayley Simpson and Ella Winstanley won the Pair Freestyle Event for Senior 16 & Younger and placed in the Top 6 for all Pair Freestyle events which gave them entry into the prestigious “Grand Champion” event. The girls were the only Australian skippers to make it to the Grand Champion event and whilst they were the youngest in their respective event, they finished a very respectable 4th overall with only 0.7 of a point dividing GOLD and fourth place. They did Canberra proud as the competition was tough!

Please see below for a list of all medals earned. Jazzy Jumpers are very proud of all of the skippers and their achievements.

The Athletes are back in training trying some of the new tricks they learnt whilst away and gearing up for a World Qualifying year in 2019. They are also lined up to perform at local schools as part of the Jump Rope for Heart program and the upcoming Amaroo School fete in November.
