Peak performance at Provincials

At the Ontario Championships, LGA gymnasts earned numerous medals and enjoyed some fantastic performances

It was a highly-successful year for the London Gymnastics Academy (LGA), and the club started out the 2018-2019 competition season on top! Congratulations to LGA’s Provincial athletes for qualifying in the Top 8 All Around to represent Team Ontario at the California Grand Invitational Tour Competition in Anaheim, CA back on January 10-14. We are so proud of Chloe Burridge (Level 10), Shayla Kellett (Level 9), Mia Sellars (Level 8), and Alison Brown (Level 7) for your amazing performances representing LGA and Team Ontario!

Then, months later, LGA rocked the house to finish off the season with a bang! Congratulations to every one of LGA’s Optional Level 6-10 Competitive Provincial athletes for qualifying for the Ontario Championships! The Level 7-10 athletes did an outstanding job with their amazing performances at this year’s Ontario Championships, held at the Libro Centre in Amherstburg on April 5-7 (and so did the Level 6 athletes who competed at the Dorchester Arena in Dorchester on April 13-14!).
