GYMNASTICS CANADA :
HIGHLIGHT REEL – commentated by Brenda Irving (CBC Sports) and Ontario’s own Ana Padurariu (Gemini).
EVENT PAGE AND RESULTS – “This competition played a key role in the selection process for our Tokyo Olympic team. We will be announcing the four athletes named to that team, along with the rest of our Olympic team on June 17th.
This past year and a half had no shortage of challenges for everyone involved in gymnastics across Canada. From all of us at Gymnastics Canada, we’d like to congratulate all of the athletes and coaches who were able to submit videos for this competition, while also recognizing all of those athletes that may not have been able to due to COVID restrictions in your province or territory. You are all champions in our books, and we can’t wait to welcome you all back to in-person competitions when it is safe to do so once again. In the meantime, stay healthy, stay active, stay safe!”
Sherry Hawko Award recipient – Senior – Brooklyn Moors (Dynamo)
The award is given in recognition of Sherry Hawco, a Cambridge Kip gymnast, who was a member of the National Team from 1977 to 1983. Sherry Hawco Delanty passed away in 1992 after a courageous battle with cancer and several weeks after the birth of her son. Sherry is remembered for her creative choreography on floor.
