Luke Wadsworth hails from Melbourne and trains at the Victorian Men’s High-Performance Centre with coaches Greg Corsiglia and Shachar Tal.
Luke began gymnastics at the age of six, and after attending a High-Performance Program Talent Identification day at the age of nine he was accepted into the Victorian HPC Program.
Continual improvement saw Luke’s Senior career really start to take flight in 2009 with a team Bronze at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival, his first significant international result. He followed this up with back-to-back appearances at the World Championship in 2010 (Netherlands) and 2011 (Japan).
Luke travelled to Glasgow in 2014 to compete in his first Commonwealth Games - where the team placed fourth overall - before competing in his third World Championships in Nanning, China, later that year.
After finishing just off the podium for three consecutive years at Australian Championships, 2015 saw Wadsworth place second All-Around behind Queensland’s Naoya Tsukuhara, while taking home Gold in the Parallel Bars.
He elevated his national performances again the following year by taking out the AA title at the 2016 Australian Championships, just ahead of fellow Victorian Luke Wiwatowski.
As a gymnast of elite pedigree, it was no surprise that Wadsworth was chosen to compete in his second Commonwealth Games for the 2018 games on the Gold Coast.
