Glacier Gymnastics earns 13 medals at provincials

The Nelson club also had 20 top-10 placements as well as a first-place team result on beam.

Nelson's Glacier Gymnastics team pose with their medal haul at the provincial championships in Langley earlier this month.

Ten gymnasts and two trampolinists from Nelson’s Glacier Gymnastics Club, strutted their stuff at the provincial championships in Langley on April 15 to 17.

The Glacier team brought home 13 medals, 20 top-10 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-10 placements,” said Sandra Long, Glacier Gymnastics head coach. “At the provincial championships, the categories are very large, running in the high 30s and up to 40. So a top-10 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.
