In 1994 Zeena was the Australian Junior National Champion.

Zeena represented Australia at Lausanne Worlds 1997 and placed 52nd in the team competition. She placed 2nd in the All Around at Wild Rose International in Canada.

1998 was a very busy year for the Australian National Champ. In Summer she won the All Around at Commenwealth Games, the Silvermedal at Pacific Alliance Championchips and placed 7th at Goodwill Games. A second place at Australian Cup and a third at Gander Memorial and a spot at bars event final on Swiss Cup confirmed her ability to compete on the highest level.

Her streghts are the technical appartus bars and beam (in 97 she performed a very original one arm handstand) and her floor routine is lyrical, just beautyfull to watch.

At World Championchips 1999 she was the Alternate for the Australian Team, the pictures below are from the official Podiumstraining.
