Elite Canada

Elite Canada Jr.

1 Woo, Rose-Kaying Gym-Richelieu 59,050
2 Olsen, Shallon Omega Gymnastics 57,650

Woo also won the event titles on bars and beam respectively. …

3 Black, Ellie – Halifax ALTA 55,250

Unlike the junior competition which was dominated by two gymnasts, in the senior’s meet each title went to a different gymnast:

Victoria Moors managed to take the all around. In the event finals she only competed on bars and beam placing 4th and 7th respectively. Overall, Victoria’s meet was riddled with mistakes, minor and major, but given that her main goal here was to test her new skills in a competition environment, she will be pleased with what she achieved. …
