Local gymnasts have strong showing at competition
Two CBN gymnasts returned from the Frosty Flip at Mount Pearl’s Frosty Festival earlier this month with a strong showing in the gymnastics competition.
Two young local gymnasts from Conception Bay North brought home medals after their strong showings at the 2010 Frosty Flip gymnastics competition. The event, hosted by Campia Gymnastics Club, was held Feb. 13 in conjunction with the Mount Pearl Frosty Festival.
Hayley Crosbie of Bay Roberts placed third overall in the Level 1 Tyro division with a first on floor, third on bars, third on balance beam, and ninth on vault.
Kayla Webber of Clarke’s Beach placed fourth overall in the Level 1 cadet division with a second on balance beam, third on bars, fourth on floor and sixth on vault.
Crosbie is a Grade 5 student at Amalgamated Academy, Bay Roberts. Webber is a Grade 2 student at All Hallows Elementary in North River.
The two CBN gymnasts were among the over 100 male and female gymnasts ranging in age from 7 to 14 years from across the province who participated in this event.
“ The level of dedication and commitment that Hayley and Kayla display to the sport of gymnastics can only be equalled by their enthusiasm and perseverance,” says Tammy Webber.
“ They make the 45minute drive to Campia in Mount Pearl for training sessions three times weekly and spend four hours in the gym each session. When they aren’t in the gym they can usually be found upside down somewhere in their homes,” Webber says.
Campia Gymnastics is a Mount Pearl based non-profit organization committed to providing a variety of competitive and recreational gymnastics programs. The club enjoys a large membership of athletes, coaches, and volunteers who all work together to provide a complete, thorough and fun training environment for gymnast ranging from national-level athletes to tots experiencing the joy and challenge of gymnastics for the first time.
