This year, Chimo Gymnastics had four athletes attend the provincial gymnastics competition, April 16-17 in Langley.

Local gymnasts had solid performances and went home with medals in several categories.  Congratulations to all the athletes and coaches who worked so hard to get to the provincial meet. The Comox Valley continues to produce top-notch athletic results with Jairus Ball as the new B.C. provincial champion for level 3 boys gymnastics.

Jasper Fellbaum placed second overall, with first in floor, parallel bars and high bars.

Emma Wolfe and Brooke Vuorela have both moved to level 7, and both achieved their goals by adding new skills and increasing their start values in the new level.

Chimo is lucky to have coach Trevor Nagy, who has worked closely with the boys’ program.  Head coach Toni Vance is very proud of all the athletes who represented the club and community so well. Over 50 dedicated Chimo gymnasts continue to train and will be competing soon in the Island Championships in Campbell River.
