The most interesting story on the recent Elite Canada competition is one club – Oakville Gymnastics in Ontario.
They have a terrific coaching staff. Depth. (They are the third largest club in Canada.) And athletes well positioned to make this one of the most important gyms in the nation, especially after the closing of Seneca earlier this year.

In fact, Oakville girls finished 1st, 4th, 14th, 16th and 19th in the youngest division, girls born 1996. Just old enough to qualify for the 2012 Olympics.
Oakville does not rush kids in competition. They take the long term vision.
I have a lot of confidence these girls can stay healthy and motivated through to the next Olympics.
Hereâ€™s some training footage filmed by Head Coach Kelly Manjak, posted on Sabrinaâ€™s account.
