More than 300 gymnasts desended on the Club de gymnastique Les Sittelles on the weekend to compete in the Envol gymnastics meet.

The meet was run over three days with competition at seven different levels for athletes age 9-17.

Among the clubs who sent athletes to the competition was the GCGC Gym-nastics Club located in Canotek Park. Other athletes came from as far away as Brockville, Richmond Hill, Smiths Falls and Cornwall.

As the host club, Les Sittelles was able to win it’s fair share of hardware including three gold medals.

Caroline Beaudoin captured gold in the nine- and 10-year-old Level 4 division thanks to a pair of first place routines on vault and uneven bars with scores high enough to overcome a seventh place performance on balance beam. She also placed fourth on floor.

Teammate Auriéle Brisson took home the silver medal in the 10-year-old Level 4 division thanks to a second place performance on balance beam and a pair of third place routines on floor and uneven bars. She also placed fourth on vault.

Les Sittelles member Jasmine Marion Ouellette won gold in the 16 and over Level 4 division after receiving top marks on the balance beam. She also placed second on vault, floor and uneven bars.

The club’s third gold medal was won by Jasmine McIntyre who pulled off the feat in the 12-year-old Level 7 division. McIntyre placed first on vault and floor and second on the uneven bars and beam.

Les Sittelles’ Maeve Dixon captured a silver medal in the 16 and over Level 6 division thanks to a trio of second place performances on floor, beam and uneven bars. Her only hiccup came on the vault where she place fifth.

Antonia Del Ciotto captured a silver medal in the 14-year-old Level 7 division after placing second on vault and beam, and third on floor.

GCGC gymnast Marisol Cavas took home the silver medal in the 10-year-old Level 3 division thanks to her first place performance on the uneven bars. She also placed second on floor and third on vault and beam.

Despite a disappointing eighth place performance on the uneven bars, Les Sittelles’ Madeleine Brideau captured the bronze medal in the 13-year-old Level 3 division thanks in large part to her second place routine on the balance beam.

Fellow Les Sittelles member Maia Ford shook off a 10th place performance on the uneven bars to capture the bronze medal in the nine-year-old Level 3 division. She placed a solid second on vault and third on floor.

Kaitlyn Ross also won a bronze medal in the 14-year-old Level 6 division, thanks to a pair of second place performances on balance beam and floor.

Julia Hajjar added to Les Sittelles bronze medal haul with a third place performance in the 14 and over Level 5 division. She placed second on uneven bars and was the picture of consistency on the other apparatus, placing fifth on vault and floor, and sixth on balance beam.
