Kate McDonald

Kate McDonald (Gymnastics), will turn 22 during the Games and if she makes the vault or uneven bars apparatus final, she will compete on her birthday. This will be her Commonwealth Games debut after she was named as a reserve for the 2018 Games team. Kate started in the sport when she was five because she loved physical activity and gymnastics was one of the sports she tried. She gradually rose up through the junior ranks, before breaking through for a bronze medal in the Uneven Bars at the Senior Nationals in 2018. Another Australian Uneven Bars bronze at the 2019 Nationals was followed by gold in that event at the Australian Classic four months later and then she gained a spot at the World Championships in Stuttgart, where she competed in Uneven Bars and Balance Beam. Kate claimed the bronze medal in the Balance Beam at the 2021 Australian Nationals, but the 2022 titles yielded even better results, taking silver in both the Uneven Bars and Balance Beam, 4th in the All-Around title and 5th on the Floor. In 2019, Kate was named the Elite Athlete Rising Star at the Deakin University Sports Awards, where she is currently studying.
