Moors, Gill, Dowling to Elite

Moors, who withdrew from Canada’s team at last year’s Commonwealth Games and hasn’t competed since winning the bronze all-around medal at the 2014 Canadian Championships in May, is one of 35 senior women listed on the meet’s athlete registration released by Gymnastics Canada this week. …

Victoria Moors Expected to Return to Competition at Elite Canada

See the complete list of Elite Canada competitors, MAG and WAG, registered via that link. There are some missing with injuries – 2014 Worlds team member Jordyn Pedersen :-( – for example, but fewer than usual I reckon.

Some of those on the registered list may not actually compete, of course, due to last minute injuries.

Canadian veteran gymnast Christine (Peng-Peng) Lee told IG that she is pacing herself in her recent return to competition for UCLA after a pre-Olympic knee injury kept her out of competition for two-and-a-half years.

“I’m not really putting pressure on myself to be perfect,” said Lee following Monday’s meet against the University of Arizona at Pauley Pavilion in Los Angeles. “There’s obviously a lot of things I can improve upon, and I think just trying to get back … “

Lee … was one of Canada’s top prospects for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. She finished 19th all-around at the 2011 world championships in Tokyo, and led Canada to a Games-winning team berth at the Olympic test event in London in January 2012.

In training at the Canadian championships in May 2012, Lee tore her left ACL. She served as honorary captain of the Canadian women’s gymnastics team at the London Olympics that summer, after which she enrolled at UCLA. …

… she is not ruling out future international competitions including the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

“I have considered it,” she told IG. “I would love to go to 2016. Right now I’m focusing on the season, but after the season, it would be great to do another world championships or go to Rio. That’s definitely a long-term goal of mine, and I’ve kept it in the back of my head.”
