Amber up for award

Kingborough gymnast Amber French has been nominated for the 2024 7News Tasmanian Young Achiever Awards.
Judging will take place on Wednesday, February 28, with finalists and winners announced at a gala presentation dinner on Saturday, May 11.
Category winners will each receive $2000 in prizes and a trophy.
One of the category winners will be named the 2024 Tasmanian Young Achiever of the Year and will also receive a state trophy.
The Kingborough Chronicle reached out to Amber for thoughts on her nomination.
"I felt very grateful to be nominated for the Tasmanian Young Achiever Award," Amber said. "Being recognised for my commitment and dedication to both the sport and sporting community is special and rewarding.
"Last year I was lucky enough to be a finalist in the Motors Tasmania Sports Award."
Amber started gymnastics at the tender age of two, participating in kindergym.
She took on trampolining at eight years old and is now the current state champion for women's trampoline and a silver medallist at the 2023 Australian Gymnastics Championships.
Amber also devotes time to helping others.
"Apart from training and competitions, I'm a full-time university student studying education, entering my third year," Amber said.
"Additionally, I coach gymnastics and work as a teacher's assistant in various schools."
