Local gymnasts prove best on Island

Last weekend, the Men's and Women's gymnastic teams were picked to represent the BC Winter Games

Last weekend, the Men’s and Women’s teams were picked for representing Zone 6 at the 2012 BC Winter Games.

On the men’s side, Nathan Chow took the Gold All around on Saturday winning pommel horse, rings, parallel bars and high bar (tie). Quinn Kuschel-Ross missed finishing second all around by .1 accepting the Bronze.  Kuschel-Ross tied for first on high bar and finished second on the floor and parallel bars.  Liam Deagle finished in the alternate position and is hoping for a Wild Card berth to the games. Deagle tied for second on Rings and took the silver on high bar.

Carson Ogg and Riley Michael competed in the Level 1 division on Saturday. Ogg finished with 80.8 points and Riley with 78.6 points, both achieving gold.  The boys look strong as they get ready to go to Surrey in March for their first competition on the mainland.

The final competition was held in Nanaimo to pick the girls team.  The field of competitors was strong with 22 girls from six clubs. Campbell River’s Kyra Boulding came away with first place in the all-around to guarantee her a spot on the winter games team. Boulding proved her potential in giving a solid performance on all four women’s apparatus, capturing the gold on the beam and the silver on the vault.  Rebecca Tazumi, one of the youngest competitors, had a great experience with her best finishes being ninth on the floor and eleventh on the vault. She showed much improved confidence in herself towards competition.
