University of Calgary International Cup RESULTS

The annual international “friendly” in Canada was better than ever this year. Canada’s top guys vs very strong teams from China and USA in a 6-5-4 format.

The top 2 international stars for Canada were out of the team. Scott Morgan competed only Rings, protecting a “lower body” injury. Kevin Lytwin (knee ligament injury) did LIVE colour commentary.

When Team USA had ZERO falls starting on Pommels, I got the feeling they’d win this event. They did.
