Glacier Gymnastics wins six gold medals at final competition of season

Glacier is also set to host its year-end show next week


The Glacier Gymnastics team had a golden finish at their last competition of the season.

Ten members of Glacier’s beginner competitive team claimed six all-around gold medals at the Kimberley Coconut Cup on June 2nd and 3rd. The competition brought together 250 gymnasts from 10 teams across Alberta and British Columbia.

Glacier’s Junior Olympic Pre-Level 6, eight-to-10 year olds took the top-two spots on the all-around podium with Anni van Hellemond winning the gold and Molly Anderson the silver. Kallie Badry performed an elegant beam routine, claiming bronze.

In the Performance Plus category, Fernanda Hartikainen, Lily Rodrigues, Ember Mullin-Topf, Maggie Kormany and Juniper Baker all received a gold all around.

“This is a fantastic end to a fantastic competitive season,” said Glacier head coach Sandra Long.

The team is looking forward to putting aside their individual routines to focus on group routines for the club’s upcoming year end show, which takes place June 12 and 13 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the show are $10. For more information, email info@glaciergymnastics.com.
