of the gymnasts hail from the TRYumph Gymnastics Academy
on Ogilvie Road, while the fourth is a member of the Tumblers
Lelei from TRYumph placed second overall in the Level 7,
age 14 division thanks to a pair of first place routines
on vault and uneven bars in which she scored 9.366 and 9.45
has high hopes heading into the Eastern Canadian Championships
which are being held in Summerside, P.E.I. from May 9-11.
Although she placed first on vault and uneven bars, she
finished eighth on floor and beam, which means she still
has a lot of room for improvement.
TRYumph gym member Adelyn Hiscocks placed second overall
in the Aspire 1, 9- to 11-year-old division. Hiscocks was
the picture of consis-tency, placing second on vault and
fourth on floor, uneven bars and beam. Her highest score
came on vault where she earned a 9.499 from the judges.
TRYumph member to earn an invitation to the Eastern Canadian
Championships was Annika Magneron who placed fifth in the
Aspire 1, 9- to 11-year-old division, despite winning the
gold medal in the vault event with an impressive 9.633.
She also placed third on beam, but a fifth on floor and
a sixtth place result on the uneven bars means she also
has room for improvement heading to Summerside.
Gloucester Tumbler heading to P.E.I. is Olivier Carriere
who placed third overall in the Level 1, 10- and 11-year-old
had high hopes heading into provincials having finished
in first place in a pair of Ontario Cup meets in January
and March. He will be looking to win a medal of a different
colour when he travels to P.E.I. next month.
