(5 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

World floor exercise champion Lauren Mitchell (Western Australia) took the lead at the first day of the Australian championships, held Thursday in Perth.

World floor exercise champion Lauren Mitchell (Western Australia) breezed to an early lead on day one of the Australian championships, held Thursday in Perth.

Mitchell notched the top mark on every event, with a high of 15.050 on balance beam. She earned her lowest score on floor exercise after falling on a 2 1/2 punch front pass, but showed off much improved choreography (click here for video).

Mitchell, who missed the 2010 edition with injury, is on track to recapture the all-around title she won in 2009. Heading into Friday's final, she holds close to a 4-point lead over second-place Georgia-Rose Brown (Victoria).

2006 Commonwealth Games champion Chloe Sims, half a point behind Brown, looked extremely fit. Sims also placed third on uneven bars and balance beam, but crashed her double pike dismount in an otherwise enjoyable floor routine (click here for video).

Victoria's Mary-Anne Monckton, fourth all-around, had the second-best score on uneven bars. 2008 Olympian Ashleigh Brennan, sixth, was second on beam.

Queensland's Georgia Godwin leads the junior all-around competition.

Competition continues Friday in Perth with the second day of junior and senior competition. The senior men's competition begins Saturday.
