Ten gymnasts and two members of the trampoline team from Nelson’s Glacier Gymnastics Club, strutted their stuff at the 2016 BC Provincial Championships held recently in Langley.

All the gymnasts’ performances seamlessly fit in with the lower mainland and other BC clubs.  The Glacier team brought home 13 medals, 20 top-ten placements ribbons and the Level 7 Glacier team took first place on beam.

“The coaching team is very pleased to have the gymnasts win so many top-ten placements,” said Sandra Long, Glacier Gymnastics Head Coach.

“At the Provincial Championships, the categories are very large, running in the high 30’s and up to 40. So a top ten finish is a big accomplishment. And it also shows that our gymnasts are strong and accomplished on all the apparatus events.” 

In the Level 6 category, Lily Taylor competed in her first Provincial Championships, 13 year-old division. She won Silver all around and on vault, Gold on beam and bars and Bronze on floor.  Another first timer, Eden Bellman, competed in the nine and under division; claiming the Silver medal for her elegant beam routine.  Abby Majeski, competed in the 10 year-old division, winning a Bronze medal for her impressive bar performance.

In the Level 7 category, Brianne Stefani, 11 years and under, took home the Gold medal for her confident beam routine and Silver for her floor routine. Sara Tolles, 15 years and up, also claimed the Gold medal for her graceful beam routine and Silver for her floor routine. Olivia Kelly, 14 year division, dazzled the judges with her unshakeable Beam routine, earning a Silver medal.
