Millie Williamson (born October 13) is a retired elite artistic gymnast from New Zealand. She competed at the 2014 Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China. She trained under Svetlana Sazonova at Christchurch School of Gymnastics.

Junior Career

2011

In February, Williamson's gym was destroyed in the Christchurch Earthquake. There was talk about closing the gym completely, but she, along with her teammates, showed up at a relocation practice and made it clear that they were not going to give up. The gym was repaired and reopened afterwards. They endured another earthquake that December, but continued to train.

2012-2013

Williamson's international debut came at the 2012 Pacific Rim Championships in Everett, USA. The New Zealand team placed seventh in the team final and Williamson placed twenty-third in the all-around.

The following year, Williamson captured the all-around title at the Perth International. She was invited, along with other New Zealand gymnasts, to compete at the Australian Nationals, where the team placed fourth. Individually, Williamson placed fourth on floor, seventh on beam, and eighth in the all-around. She competed in the KSI Cup later that year, but did not qualify to the all-around.

2014

Williamson qualified for the only spot for the Youth Olympic Games at the Australian Nationals, beating out Australia's strongest juniors. In Nanjing, she performed well but placed nineteenth in qualifications, not high enough for the all-around or individual event finals.

Senior Career

Williamson's senior debut came at the Anadia World Cup in May 2015, but she failed to make the event finals. After tearing her ACL twice, she retired in 2016.[1]
