Ashari Gill (Rhythmic gymnastics) made her Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham where she was part of the trio that won silver in the Team Event. She also finished inside the top 16 in the All-Around qualification but was not eligible for the final because the other two Australians were ranked higher. Ashari’s fascination began when watching the 2006 Commonwealth Games in her hometown of Melbourne aged 4. Shortly after, her mum took her to her first gymnastics class and she never looked back. Ashari has been part of the national team since 2018 when she was shortlisted for the High-Performance Athlete of the Year Award by Gymnastics Victoria. In 2019, Ashari competed at the Rhythmic World Championships in Baku, Azerbaijan where she was part of the Australian trio that finished 30th in the Team Event. She was also 128th in Clubs and 87th in the Ribbon. She finished 19th in the All-Around at the Rhythmic World Cup in Tashkent in 2022. Ashari has been honing her skills for over a decade at the Prahran Rhythmic Gymnastics Centre in Melbourne under head coach Kateryna Logachova. Ashari, who is of Sri Lankan descent, turned 20 on the opening day of the Birmingham Games and is studying for a Bachelor of Arts and Science. Her grandfather, Dhansiri Weerasinghe, who migrated to Australia in 1974, played first-class cricket for Ceylon (Sri Lanka) between 1958 and 1969.
