Hudson Irwin impresses at AIS camp

TALENTED Wimmera gymnast Hudson Irwin has excelled at a training camp at Canberra's Australian Institute of Sport.

The Men's Artistic Gymnastics Junior National Development Camp focused on developing both basic and difficult skills.

The gymnasts also completed profile tests, which saw Irwin place first and second in his age group for Victoria and overall respectively.

Thirty-seven gymnasts and 11 coaches from 11 national high performance programs attended the camp.

National coach John Curtin led four days of extensive training, assisted by Greg Corsiglia, Sergei Chinkar and Yu Bo.

Irwin's mother Leonie Irwin was thrilled with his performance.

"This is an amazing effort by Hudson, considering his travel restrictions living in the Wimmera," she said.

"Hudson had a great time at the camp and completed profile strength and flexibility testing."

The Irwins travel four hours from their Horsham home to Irwin's training base at Prahran's Victorian High Performance Centre.

The family makes the trip several times a month.

Irwin is a member of the WestVic Academy of Sport: Individual Member Program, which allows him access to personalised sports psychology sessions and nutrition consultations.

He will receive a musculoskeletal screening and a personalised strength and conditioning program to help his continued development and success.
