|More about SLATER Allana:|
|She is one of the world's earliest starters in gymnastics, having taken up the sport as a toddler at the age of… 16 months, following her doctor's recommendation, as a way to help cure sleep Apnoea.
Internationally she was first spotted at the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur, when the Australian team won their first ever gold medal and Allana took two silver medals: in the all -around and on floor.
Her Floor routine that turned into one of the 2000 Sydney Olympics highlights was composed by Irina Milogradova (formerly USSR, now lives in the USA) on one of the most popular songs in her country-"I still call Australia my home".
What makes Allana unique for the Australian Gymnastics is the fact that she has achieved:
* The highest ranked for a female Australian gymnast at World Championships - Ghent (BEL) 2001 -4th on Floor.
* She is the first Australian to win Gold at a Grand Prix event (A. Bars, Stuttgart 2000) * The first Australian to win a medal at a Grand Prix Final (Silver on A. Bars, Glasgow 2000)
* She has represented Australia at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, four World Championships:1999 Tianjin (Team 5th, AA 9th), 2001 Ghent , 2002 Debrecen and 2003 Anaheim (Team/Bronze, AA 13th) and two Commonwealth Games (1998 Kuala Lumpur- Team/gold, All-around/silver) and 2002 Manchester- 2gold (Team and Vault), 2 silver ( A. Bars and Beam) and one bronze medal (All-around)
Recent best achievements:
