Artistic Gymnastics

Michael Merceica from The University of Queensland is preparing for his third appearance at the World University Games after claiming a national title earlier in the year.

The men's team of five, which also includes Mitchell Morgans, Christopher Remkes, Clay Stephens and Michael Tone, will use the Summer Universiade as the perfect multi-sport style competition ahead of the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast next year.

In 2016, Merceica was selected to represent Australia at the Aquece Rio Olympic Test Event at the Rio Games before going on to win the All Around national title in May.

"Last year was quite disappointing to come away with an injury in qualifiers, but it all came together this year, which feels so good," he said after winning gold.

Merceica competed at the 2015 Summer Universiade placing 23rd in the All Around qualification in South Korea, and also featured in the teams event at the 2011 Games.
