Sabrina Gill 2011 Canadian Athlete of the Year


Sabrina Gill, 2011 Canadian Junior Athlete of the Year
 Sabrina Gill was awarded the Canadian Junior Athlete of the year this past Saturday at the Canadian National Championships!!!  This award is for the most medals won in domestic and international competitions by a Junior National Team member!

Attending the Pacific Rim Championships in Australia representing Team Canada was an amazing experience for her competing against some of the best gymnasts in the world for the first time!!

Next up was the Canada Winter Games in Halifax where Sabrina helped Team Ontario win the Gold and also picked up Gold medals in the All Around, Uneven bars and Beam!! 

Gymnix International in March saw Sabrina representing Team Canada again in the Junior International Cup and with her excellent performance Canada emerged champions and Gold medal winners.  Sabrina added a Silver in the All Around, and Gold Medals in Vault and Uneven bars!

In her final International competititon of the season, Wild Rose International, Sabrina was called upon to represent Canada as a Senior!!!!  Competing against teams from China, Australia, Belgium, Great Britain and Wales Team Canada was able to beat China to the Gold Medal in an exciting team competition.  In the All around Sabrina earned a bronze medal above members of the Chinese and Australian teams that have previously competed at World Championships!!  Incredible!!

Sabrina is an very dedicated and hard working gymnast and she has been rewarded this past year with some excellent results!!  We are confident that Sabrina will continue to work hard every day and are excited about the prospects for her future!  During the recent Canadian National Championships broadcast, commentator Kyle Shewfelt said that she is the future of Canadian Gymnastics!!  Nice endorsment from someone who knows what it takes to make it on the world stage!!

Here is a link to the awards presentation!  Note the smile!!
