With golden performances on vault and the uneven bars, Alexandria Tonkin reigned supreme at the Tours and Selection competition in Etobicoke.
Finishing half-a-point ahead of Dynamo Gymnastics’ Emma Spence in the all-around National Novice standings, the 12-year-old Miltonian — who trains in Burlington — earned a berth to Elite Canada in late January. Alexandria delivered a personal-best effort of 14.4 on the vault and also set a new benchmark of 13.55 on the floor, where she nailed both her double back and double pike to take second.
Despite a stumble during her new geinger release move, she was able to finish first on the bars with a 12.7-point showing.
Alexandria rounded out the weekend with a fourth-place performance on the beam.
Her victory came over nine other competitors.
A top finish at Elite Canada will stamp her ticket to the national championships in May.
