Gym wins for two Tri-City residents
Two Coquitlam gymnasts have vaulted with wins at the Elite Canada meet at Sherwood Park, Alta.
Last Saturday saw Robert Watson win the floor event in the men’s senior competition that was dominated by Saskatoon’s Anderson Loran.
Other winners were Ken Ikeda of Abbotsford on pommel horse, Scott Morgan of Vancouver on rings, Jayd Lukenchuk of Saskatoon on parallel bars and Hugh Smith of Halifax on vault.
Meanwhile, Shallon Olsen of Coquitlam clinched her second straight all-around junior title. Olsen placed first on vault, floor and uneven bars and was seventh on beam.
She was followed by Heaven Latimer of Burford, Ont., and Aleeza Yu of Richmond Hill, Ont.
