Gymnastics finding its feet in Fiji

12 May 2017

Gymnastics is taking its first steps in the Pacific island nation of Fiji, with a fun and friendly format designed to lure locals. It might not yet be in every village but it has already succeeded in finding and developing a Fijian face of the sport.

AeroGym is a mix of aerobics and gymnastics. Both are well known for being easy and fun to try but equally as hard to truly master.

The Pacific Sports Partnerships (PSP) program is Australia’s flagship sport for development program in the Pacific. Through PSP, Australia supports activities to address primary risk factors associated with non-communicable diseases, particularly physical inactivity, and address inequalities experienced by women, girls and people living with disability.

One of the key aims of the Australian Aid-supported AeroGym sport for development program is to build leadership capacity in women.
