My name is Olivia Watts and I am originally from New Zealand. I trained in Rhythmic gymnastics at Olympia in Christchurch New Zealand and finished my gymnastics career in 2007, as a senior gymnast in group, after competing for New Zealand in world cups around the world. I have since moved into circus performing and coaching. I completed a bachelor of circus arts in Melbourne recently while coaching RG at Prahran Rhythmic gymnastics centre where I was a coach for 6 years. I am an advanced accredited level coach and an intermediate bronze level judge. I have recently moved to Adelaide and am excited to work with the lovely gymnasts at Aelita.
