Chimo gymnasts racking up great results

A number of gymnasts from Chimo Gymnastics have been racking up  impressive results at recent meets, including the BC Artistic Gymnastic Championships and the Orca Invitational in Duncan.

At the B.C. championships, where competition is extremely intense, three gymnasts came home with hardware. Emma Wolfe placed 9th on vault in JO6, Sophia Mosse, scored a 7th on the uneven bars and 1st on the balance beam for 8th all around in JO 7 and Sawyer Sturam placed 10th on vault, 4th on the balance beam and 5th on floor exercise for an all around  9th placing in the JO8 category.

A larger contingent of gymnasts were in Duncan last weekend for the Orca Invitational Meet. There were a lot of great results from several Chimo gymnasts.

Interclub: Mya Drobot – gold in all four events (vault, uneven bars, beam and floor) and gold all around. Paige Randall – silver in vault, gold in balance beam, uneven bars, floor and AA. Sarah Roberts – 3 golds (vault, floor, AA) and 2 silvers (balance beam and uneven bars).

Junior Olympic 3: Brynn Johnson –  1st in balance beam and AA, 2nd in vault, 4th in uneven bars and floor. Taylor Parker –  2nd in uneven bars and floor, 7th in vault and balance beam, 4th AA. Monique Vinnedge –  4th in vault, 10th in uneven bars. Jade Comeau – 2nd AA, 3rd in vault, 4th in uneven bars, balance beam and floor. Abby Landry – 3rd in uneven bars and floor, 5th AA and 6th in vault.

“The girls who performed in Interclub and JO 1 are part of our pre-competitive program; they all had excellent results,” a Chimo spokesperson said. “All of our gymnasts had a successful weekend. Everyone placed on at least two events, had personal bests, and achieved personal goals.

“As an example, Kenzie Pritoula scored 9.8 out of 10 for her floor routine. Congratulations to all our girls and thanks to coaches for supporting all of the Chimo gymnasts is such positive ways.”
