Ready or not here we come!!!!

Not too long ago you would not have seen the name Oakville Gymnastics Club beside any athletes competing at Gymnix International.  What a difference a few short years can make.  Oakville now has the largest National Women's Program in the country and has 6 National team members representing Canada at Gymnix this coming weekend!!

Sabrina Gill, Elise Bolger and Jordyn Pedersen will represent Canada in the Junior Cup on Saturday and will be competing against teams from Russia, Great Britain, Belgium and Mexico!

Sylvia Colussi Paleaz, Jessica Dowling, Bianca Jordaan, Krishna Yemeny, Mikeala Gerber, Peng Peng Lee and Jessica Savona will compete on Friday in the Gymnix Challenge competing against athletes from as far away as Australia and Japan!! 

Event finals for both groups are Sunday afternoon!!!

One of the greatest things about Gymnix is that gymnasts of all levels can participate.  It is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to feel a part of a large international meet! Also representing Oakville this weekend are:
Mariana Colussi Paleaz and Melissa Dowling - Open
Sydney and Taylor Davison and Kathryn Doran -Novice

The last of three provincial qualifiers are over!  Phew!!   Some great results!!!  26 medals in total - 6 gold, 8 silver and 12 bronze!  Not too shabby!!  We now wait on the list of qualified athletes for Provincials!  Stay tuned for more details!!

Gymbrooke has a listing of where athletes stand put together by volunteer parents but they are not official!!  Just a snapshot !!  You will need to wait for Gymnastics Ontario to post the list of qualified athletes to be 100% sure!!!  (At last check level 5, 6 and 7 were updated.  Level 8 and 9 still to be completed)

We are looking forward to continued success at Ontario Championships and Elite Ontario in April!!!
