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.
