The Tumblers Gymnastics Centre held its annual Winter Wonderland Tumblers Classic meet on the weekend with competition in a variety of different levels and age groups.

Among the medalists were a number of Tumblers who walked away with gold silver and bronze. Claire Parsons swept all four apparatus in the Level 3 age 12 division to take home the All Around gold medal. She tied for first place in balance beam, vault and uneven bars and won on floor.

Hélène Orfali took home the All Around gold in the Level 4, 15 and over division. She earned top marks on the balance beam and finished second on vault and floor.

Although she didn’t win an individual apparatus gold medal, Emma Britton won the All Around gold in the Level 5, 14 and 15 age group after she placed second in all four disciplines.

Last, but by no means least, Alexandra Van der Velden won the All Around gold medal in the Level 2, 13 and over division thanks to a first place result in beam and floor and a pair of second place results in vault and uneven bars. Fellow Tumbler Annika Plante finished second in the division after placing first on bars and second on beam.

Tumblers gymnasts also swept the top three positions in the Level 2, 11-year-old division. Isabella Ochomogo came in first, Sophie Cook second and Elisha MacLean- Butts third.

Other results of note include Lauryn Sabbaugh’s gold medal floor routine in the Level 6, 10-year-old division; Aldyn Murphy’s gold medal routines on vault and floor in the Level 6, 12-year-old division; and Amelia Mikovich’s gold medal performance on beam in the Level 7, 11- and 12-year-old division.

Other east end gymnasts who fared well include Janique Boulet from the Club gymnastique Les Sittelles who won the All Around gold medal in the Level 7, 15 and over division and Hannah Washburn from the Gloucester Cumberland Gymnastics Centre who won the All Around gold medal in Level 1, 10- and 11-year-old division.
