A top Australian gymnast who narrowly missed out on a finals berth at the Tokyo Olympics has hit back after the sport's governing body declared it  'just wasn't our night'. Georgia Godwin was in finals contention right up until the final subdivision on Sunday night, when she was edged out by competitors from Brazil and Germany. When the competition drew to a close near midnight, Gymnastics Australia released a statement which read: 'Not our night tonight unfortunately', revealing that Godwin and her teammate Emily Whitehead had ranked 37th and 44th out of the 80 gymnasts competing for a spot in the all-around finals.   Georgia Godwin and Emily Whitehead were selected to represent Australian gymnastics at the Tokyo Olympics Due to sport specific rules which mean only two gymnasts from each nation can progress to the next round, Godwin was in fact just shy of progressing and will now act as a third reserve in the case of injuries before the medaling events.

Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has slapped down calls to bring back JobKeeper as Sydney faces another lockdown extension. The NSW Coalition government, Labor and unions have called for a re-introduction of the wage subsidy scheme which paid struggling companies $1,500 per worker per fortnight in 2020. But Mr Frydenberg said the federal government's $600 per week pandemic disaster payment was faster and better targeted to people who need it.

'They are also targeted because they are based on the number of hours lost rather than the turnover reduction of the business that you work for.  'Also, the net has been cast wider with all casuals being eligible for these payments,' he said. The payments of $600 a week for people who lose more than 20 hours and $375 for people who lo

'It's like a spoiler, during the race': Channel Seven sparks debate over 'annoying' new graphic showing the speed of swimmers at the Olympics - but some viewers say they love it

Image
Channel Seven has sparked passionate debate over its use of a graphic that shows the speed of the leading swimmers at the Tokyo Olympic Games. Comedian Tom Cashman took to TikTok to accuse the network of 'spoiling' the result of races before they finish with the controversial new feature. The graphic, which only appears next to the leading swimmers for small portions of each race, shows their nationality and their current speed in metres per second. 'My big issue with this is that this isn't some interesting trivia tidbit piece of information, this is core information about that race,' Cashman said. 'That's what the whole point of a race is - to see who the fastest swimmer is, so they're halfway through a race and telling us the speeds.'       @tom.cashman Olympic swimming speeds #olympics #tokyoolympics #swimming #olympicswimming #australia #olympics2021 #fy #foryou #fyp ♬ original sound - cashman.tom @tom.cashman Olympic swimming speeds #olymp
