Well that is it!!  The London Test Event is over for the artistic gymnasts!  A very successful event for the Canadian Womens Team.

Silver in the team competition, 4th and 5th place finish in the uneven bars final, 4th place finish in the beam final and a silver medal for the youngest member of the team on floor!!!  Wow!!  Great results!!

Here is Peng Peng's bars from event finals.  The difference between 5th and 3rd was just 0.134!!!!  Peng and team mate Kristina Vaculik both had the highest execution marks in the bar final!!!

Oh What a Day!!

What a great day for the Canadian Women's team!!  The team, who lead for three divisions, were only bested by an Italian team that had an even more amazing meet than the Canadians!! 

The goal was to qualify a full team for London 2012!  Mission accomplished!!!

As an added bonus Peng Peng Lee and Kristina Vaculik made Uneven Bar finals, Maddie Gardner Beam finals and Victoria Moors Floor finals (while posting the highest score in qualification).

Congratulations to the entire team including our Mikaela Gerber who was injured but was ready to contribute if called upon!!

Good luck to the girls in their event finals!!

Oh yeah!!! London Baby!!!!

After two subdivisions and with three teams still to go we can officially say that the Canadian Women have qualified a full team to the 2012 Olympic games!!!  Now that is something to brag about!!!!

Canadian Women in first after Division 1

With an improvement of over 6 points from their Worlds score the Canadian Women are sitting in first position.  221.813 is a massive score and surely is good enough to get them to the Olympics. 

Here is Peng's bars and floor from this morning!!  She had the highest all around score as well.

Jessica Savona

With all the talk of the London Test Event going on I thought I would take a minute out to let you know how Jessica is getting on!!  She is training on all four events, some a little less "aggressively" than others but she looks happy and that is a wonderful thing!!  Her five month anniversary is tomorrow and after her visit to the surgeon she expects to be back training 100%.

Jessica is not only a great athlete but a tremendous asset to the gym and any team.  I have just watched as Jess helped nurse one of our younger elite athletes after a bit of a nasty bar fall.  She had her laughing within minutes!!!  That's our Jess!!!

London Test Event Podium Training Videos

By the sound of reports from the Gymnastics Examiner Peng Peng Lee and the rest of the Canadians are looking good.  Looks like Mikaela is the alternate at the moment.  Here are a few videos of our Oakville Girls.
