Gallardo & Fletcher to CAN WAG Team

With the 2024 Paris Olympic Games less than 18 months away and buoyed by the Olympic qualification performance from the Women’s team at the 2022 World Championships, Gymnastics Canada is pleased to announce the establishment of the technical leadership team for the national women’s artistic gymnastics (WAG) high performance program leading into the Games. 

Mr. Christian Gallardo and Ms. Kyna Fletcher will lead the overall strategic and operational planning for the program …

Christian Gallardo – National Team Lead (Technical)

  • Athlete/Coach Technical Support and Mentorship
  • Major competition technical leadership
  • In conjunction with the team, provides High Performance Program planning and leadership

Kyna Fletcher – National Team Lead (Operations)

  • Leads strategic planning and oversite for HP and NT program
  • Provides support in the development of the overall program goals and objectives
  • Works closely with the Program Manager in the development and implementation of technical and operational program plans. …

Kyna Fletcher was WAG National Team Director from 2011-2014, leading CAN to a best ever team finish at the 2012 Olympics.

Christian Gallardo coached Nia Dennis, Shania Adams, and Shilese Jones, as well as Gabby Douglas.

There was a complaint against Christian that was dismissed by the Ohio State government agency in April 2021. I’ve seen the documentation and he was found innocent of all charges.

Personally, I’m happy Canada has a clear National Team coaching structure leading up to Paris. With no need to qualify at Worlds 2023, the team can use a Paris focused training plan.
