Canadian Championships day 1

Lauren posted results from the virtual competition.

Ava Stewart has really benefited from the pandemic year. She’s been second to Ellie all season.

Sadly her teammate Ana Padarariu seems to be no longer eligible for the Olympics, unable to come back from injury. We may have to wait to cheer Ana at UCLA. I’d certainly support any appeal to go directly to Olympic trials.

It’s been a super difficult year for Canadians, many having faced multiple Gym closures and restrictions.

It’s weird, as well, competing “Nationals” in your own Gym. With no audience.

The one plus is avoiding injury on competition vault landing mats. I was at Nationals in 2012 when Peng was injured out of the London Olympics on a training day. Vault landing.

Gymnastics Canada posted some of the top routines on Vimeo.
