Chimo gymnasts excel at their PJ Meet

Chimo Gymnastics recently hosted the first Island gymnastics meet of the season. Over 200 athletes attended this event, called the PJ Meet, reflecting the fun atmosphere of the event.

Coaches Toni, Ford, Trevor and Saskia had 50 athletes from the Comox Valley in 10 female categories and two male categories. Congratulations to all the athletes who competed for Chimo. Everyone from beginner to most experienced did extremely well, and coaches and parents who filled the stands were proud of each athlete for their amazing accomplishments so early in the season.

Our generous parents and community businesses made for a great weekend. Thanks to the hard work of many parents and businesses this year had the equipment set up in record time and more sponsors than ever before, letting the athletes focus on their events.

Four athletes from Chimo received first place medals in their age and level categories: Ella Ashfield and Taelyn Stuve in their level 1 age categories, Thea Parker for level 3, and Jarius Ball for male level 3.

Also on the podiums for second and third places were Jasper Fellbaum, Emma Wolfe, Malaiah Ceria, Brynn Johnston, Jade Blouin Comeau, Raina Hagel, Laurence Fontaine, Annika Hemmels, Charlie Cudmore and Emma Woloshyn.

Chimo was also well represented by several Interclub and Interclub+ girls who presented themselves very proudly in this performance based program. What a great start to the gymnastics season!
