The future of gymnastics in Sudbury looks bright
2023-02-23

The future of women's artistic gymnastics with the GymZone - Sudbury Laurels looks bright, if one is to base their opinion on the results that came from the group's first qualifier of the year last month in Muskoka.

A total of 12 competitors in the JO (Junior Olympic) Levels 2-4 bracket represented the local club, with more than half walking away with some sort of hardware, led by Brooklyn Geddes (Level 3 - age 10) who earned overall aggregate gold (36.20) in large part thanks to her first place finishes on bars (9.50), vault (9.55) and her floor routine.

Also making it to the very top of the podium was Gracie Currie (Level 3 - age 9), earning gold on the vault with a huge effort (9.45) as well as placing fourth on bars (9.20).

Just one step away were the quartet of Valerie Laverdière (Level 2 - age 9; silver on floor - 9.50; AA score of 36.35), Klara Martic (Level 3 - age 9; silver on bars - 9.45; bronze on floor - 9.15; 4th in AA - 36.85), Annabella Wiley (Level 3 - age 10; silver on bars - fantastic routine - 9.275; 5th in AA) and Hermione Gauthier-Le Coz (Level 3 - age 11; silver on beam and floor; bronze on vault; bronze in AA - 36.425).

One of four Level 4 Laurels who competed, Kinslie Einoff secured a bronze medal on her floor routine, sliding in just ahead of teammates Kenickie MacNeil (8th), Alya Dutrisac (9th) and Elina Zelionka (10th) in the overall aggregate.

Madison Lynds (Level 2 - age 9) placed fifth on the floor (9.30), helping her achieve an AA score of 36.075 while Bria Recoskie (Level 3 - age 9) had a very solid start to her season with a fifth place showing on bars and sixth in her vault.

These Laurels are back in action on the weekend of March 3rd to the 5th, travelling to Pickering for their second qualifier of the season, with provincials (for those who qualify) and a possible invitational meet in Mariposa (June 9th to 11th) still to come.
