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.

“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.”
