Tiffany Sharkie from the Campbell River gymnastics club took second place in the 2001 Ogopogo gymnastics competition in Kelowna last weekend. Sharkie was the only competitor from Campbell River to participate and looked great.

She started the competition a little rocky with a fall on her floor exercise but came back with an excellent front handspring, full twist on the vault to capture the silver medal.  Sharkie  then went to the bars where another slight mishap on an over rotated back hip circle caused her to fall again.

Fortunately,  a clean floor and nice bars kept her in fifth place on the bars and still in the running for an all-around medal.

Sharkie finished the competition with a strong solid beam routine to win her the gold medal on that apparatus, good enough for an overall second place finish.
