Andreoli claims world championship

NARINGAL aerobics exponent Brenton Andreoli is today a three-time world champion.

Andreoli last night claimed the senior sport aerobics male solo title at the Federation of International Sport Aerobics and Fitness world championships at Belgrade, Serbia.

The title backed up his world championship wins in 2009 (juniors) and 2010 (seniors).

Andreoli, 20 and into his last year competing on the international stage, also won the senior mixed pairs world championship teaming with Jan Juc's Emily Daniels.

Warrnambool teenagers Jordan Rooke and Jess Brunt are also on a high after claiming a breakthrough silver medal in the junior mixed pairs.

The long-time friends, 15, likewise dazzled judges with their two-minute routine, maintaining their position from the preliminary and semi-final rounds.

The result had heart-warming symmetry for their coach Emma Bellman, 24, who also placed second in the junior mixed pairs at the 2005 world championships.

Bellman, who runs EKB Fitness and Aerobics, also reached the final this year, placing fifth in the senior female trios section.

She teamed with Shepparton's Emma O'Keeffe and Geelong's Kayla Bamford - the trio calling themselves Devotion - to earn the result.

They were sixth at world championships last year.
