Larni Hermans earns state calisthenics title

Former Horsham resident Larni Hermans has won a solo title at Calisthenics Victoria State Championships.

An ecstatic Miss Hermans said the event was the biggest and final competition of the solo season. 

“It’s definitely my biggest win. I’ve never won a state title before, so this was super exciting,” she said. 

“I also finished the season undefeated, which was pretty unreal.”

The St Vincent’s Hospital nurse is a member of Avonde Calisthenics College in Melbourne and has competed in calisthenics for 21 years.

Miss Hermans started her calisthenics at Horsham Calisthenics College.

Another former Horsham member Esther Craig received an honourable mention at the championships.

“I’m always incredibly proud of Esther. We grew up doing calisthenics together so it is so lovely even now that we are at different clubs, we can still share our love for the sport,” Miss Hermans said.
