Mitch Morgans (Gymnastics) made his second Commonwealth Games appearance in Birmingham where he was 4th on Horizontal bar and 5th on Parallel Bars. He was also part of the men’s team that finished 4th. Four years earlier on the Gold Coast, he was part of the men’s team that finished 5th. Known as ‘Middy’ to his friends, Morgans started gymnastics when he was three, going along to train with his older sister. His first senior Australian titles were in 2011 and his consistency over the next three years, including six individual apparatus medals, saw him selected for the 2014 Commonwealth Games team. Unfortunately, injury forced him to withdraw. Winning the Horizontal Bar at the 2015 Australian Championships was followed by his first major international competition, the World University Games in South Korea. In 2017, he went to his first World Championships, followed by Commonwealth Games selection in 2018, and he was named Senior International Male Gymnast of the Year by Gymnastics Australia in 2019. After claiming the All-Around title at the 2021 Australian Nationals, Morgans finished 1st in the Parallel Bars at the 2022 Australian Nationals, as well as third in the Horizontal Bar. He has studied Sports Science at the University of Canberra.
