Three Macarthur-based gymnasts have shown off their skills on the big stage.

D'Vine Gymsports students Pauline Gibbe, Elizabeth Lisita-Chochechi and Chloe Tate all recorded impressive results at the 2019 Winter State Championships on the weekend.

Edmondson Park's Pauline, 12, finished second overall in her level six senior class.

Ten-year-old Elizabeth, of Ambarvale, took third place in the level five category while Lansvale's Chloe, 10, secured fourth overall in the junior level six class.

Pauline, Elizabeth and Chloe were part of a contingent of nine D'Vine Gymsports students to compete in the event at Sydney Gymnastics Centre, Rooty Hill.

D'Vine Gymsports owner Belinda Vine said all of her students performed well.

"I was really happy, the championships were of a hard standard," she said.

Vine said the gymnasts trained well in the lead up to the event.

"These girls train four times a week, for up to 16 to 18 hours, so they are very dedicated," she said.
