Competitive athletes shine at 2009 Provincials
The Champions gymnastics competitive team trained hard for the Ontario Provincial Gymnastics Championships, and it definitely payed off. Our club sent nine gymnasts to the Provincials, which placed our club in the medium club category. After a weekend of intense competition, our team brought back five overall medals and Silver in the team competition.
