Rianna Mizzen Announces Retirement
Last month we were sadden to hear that Queensland High Performance gymnast, Rianna Mizzen, announce her retirement from Women’s Artistic Gymnastics.
Rianna started gymnastics at six years of age at Logan PCYC. After one year at Logan PCYC, she moved to Robertson Gymnastics Club and started her competitive career at the young age of seven.
Having demonstrated a huge amount of talent, Rianna was quickly identified and started training at the Gymnastics Queensland High Performance Centre at nine years of age.
She first represented Queensland at National Championships in 2010 in IDP 6. Rianna then went on to be a Queensland Team Member for nine years, with a career highlight being crowned the Australian All Around Senior International Champion in 2016, where she was also was the National Champion on Uneven Bar.
Rianna’s first international medal was Gold on Uneven Bars at the World Challenge Cup in Anadia, Portugal in 2016. Rianna then competed in her first World Championships in Montreal, Canada in 2017. She was selected to compete in the 2018 World Championships in Doha, but sadly injured her knee the day before departing Australia.
Another career highlight for Rianna was winning the Bronze Team medal at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Gymnastics Queensland is now pleased to see Rianna continue her involvement in Gymnastics, as she coaches at Western Districts Youth Club in Brisbane. We thank Rianna for all her hard work and wish her all the best in her future endeavours.
