Team Australia Wins Gold & Silver Medals At ICU World Championships

ORLANDO, FLORIDA: For the first time in over 10 years, the Australian Cheer Union sent over two National Cheer teams that were selected from the nation’s best cheerleaders from across the country, and they made their mark on the international cheerleading community, with the coed team winning a silver medal and the All Girl team being crowned WORLD CHAMPIONS!

This is the first year Australia has ever won the ICU World Cheerleading Championship title, and to do it from a nationally selected team with athletes from across the country is a testament to how Australia has become a powerhouse in competitive cheerleading. The result has cemented Australia’s status as global contenders in a sport dominated by the USA and showed Aussie cheerleaders that anything is possible. 

The teams prepared for this competition by attending three training camp weekends in Australia, and just three practice sessions the week before the competition in the USA. To be able to not only put together a routine of such a high caliber, but also to execute it at a level to be considered for the tops spots is a massive effort and we are so proud of our coaches and athletes of our national cheer teams, they conducted themselves with a level of professionalism and sportsmanship that was a level above anything we have seen before, and it paid off! 

“We finally achieved our goal of being crowned world champions!” Said Derrick Turner, the head coach of Team Australia - All Girl.
