Chimos tackle Twisters

Comox Valley gymnasts do well at Abbotsford invitational meet

JOSEE JALBERT OF the Chimos placed first in Level 2 Novice.







Chimo gymnasts put in solid performances at the first meet off the island this season at the Twisters Invitational in Abbotsford.

Level 2 Novice Josee Jalbert started the meet out with a bang with her first place overall finish, surely a highlight of the season, so far, for her. Kira Magor fought hard for her eighth place finish in the same category.

Level 2 Tyro Maiah Tanner was sixth overall with a second place vault. Sophia Mossie had a very respectable ninth place overall finish in the very large Tyro 3 category.

Toni Smith finished in third place overall after placing second on both bars and beam and teammate Isabella Pelletier rounded out their Open 2 category in sixth place with a fantastic first place vault.

Kaylee Guignard’s second-place floor routine won her the floor choreography award for showing grace and excellence in musical interpretation; she finished fifth overall in the Novice 3 category. Lauren Carr’s floor routine tied for second place and she finished fourth overall in the Level 3 Open category and Sawyer Sturam placed first on bars in her first meet since overcoming an ankle injury finishing fifth overall in the Open 3 category.

This meet was part of the athletes’ preparations for the Provincial Championships in Prince George on April 5-8.  Each athlete will have personal goals that she hopes to achieve at this upcoming meet and will work hard to bring home some great results while proudly representing Chimo Gymnastics and the Comox Valley.
