These are great photos, have any of the other photographers put pictures up online?

Looking at the hold Alex Puccio's right hand is on here:

The way she latched it with both hands, cut loose, held the swing and pulled up on it is just mind-boggling!

That move by Puccio was pretty amazing, the whole crowd went quiet at that point, from memory Shauna did something pretty similar right after, inspiring stuff!

Just wondered if a write up and podium shots of the other junior categories was on it's way. Was up there watching on sunday and think they deserve a bit of the limelight too!

Isn't Alex Puccio American? Or is the competition open?
