Campbell River Springs play host to Island Gymnastics Championships

Locals not only performed well, but also put on a great event for teams from all over the Island

The Campbell River Gymnastics Association recently hosted the 2018 Island Championships and it turned out to be the biggest event yet for the club.

With 170 gymnasts representing clubs from Victoria – Falcons and Lion’s Pride – the Duncan Dynamics, Nanaimo Gymnastics School, Chimo from Comox and, of course, the host club CR Springs the competition was a huge success, according to organizers.

“Jennifer Kerluck and Christy Wheatley went out of their way to make this event extra special with all the work they put into the details of the event,” says club representative Todd Sader. “As always, Laura Grannery-Smith did the bulk of the administration load while we had Allison Miles help out doing all the scoring. Many of our athletes and parents also volunteered to make this event even better. A big shout out to the group 1 girls who participated in the demonstrations at the end of the last few sessions and the group 1 athletes who helped with the judging. This was the last competition for the athletes this year. Congrats to Alexandra Smith who won the All Around title in the JO Level 6 division.”
