The TRYumph Gymnastics Academy sent three athletes to the Eastern Cana-dian Championships in P.E.I. earlier this month and the three young ladies returned home with three medals including a gold medal in the Aspire 1 Division.

(L to r) Annika Magneron, Stacey Lelei and Adelyn Hiscocks recently competed Eastern Canadian Gymnastic Championships in Summerside, P.E.I. where they won a total of 13 medals, including six of the golden variety. FILE PHOTO

The golden girl was Annika Magneron, 11, who won gold medals on the uneven bars and floor, as a well as a silver on vault, on her way to winning the all around gold medal.

Adelyn Hiscocks, 10, won the gold medal on vault and was consistent enough on the other apparatus to join her TRYumph teammate on the podium in third place. Although she placed third in the Aspire 1 division, she finished first among the competitors her own age.

The third TRYumph gymnast who competed oin P.E.I was Stacey Lelei, 14, who placed second in the all around competition in the Level 7 Novice division. The vaulting specialist took the gold medal on the apparatus with an out-standing score of 9.833. She also placed second on floor and beam.

Hiscocks' Achilles' heel turned out to be the uneven bars where she placed eighth. Still, she added four medals to the girls' total haul of 10 individual medals � five gold, four silver and a bronze. They also won a gold medal as members of Team Ontario which won the overall competition.

It was a terrific result for the Academy which opened less than a year ago.

Gym owner and head coach Alina Florea is justifiably proud of her young charges.

"They did very well. The competition was extremely high and they rose to the challenge,� said Florea.
