Black back with three sil­vers

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

KOPER, SLOVE­NIA — Cana­dian gym­nast El­lie Black cap­tured three sil­ver medals at the FIG World Chal­lenge Cup in her first com­pe­ti­tion since the Rio Olympic Games.

The Hal­i­fax na­tive placed sec­ond on the beam, floor and un­even bars. Black nar­rowly missed a medal with her vault rou­tine, fin­ish­ing .300 points off the podium in fourth place.

“It’s nice to be back with some of my Cana­dian team­mates,” Black said. “I’m happy with the per­for­mances that we had, and we can con­tinue to build from here.”

Rose Woo of Brossard, Que., also qual­i­fied for the un­even bars, beam and vault fi­nals, fin­ish­ing in sixth, sev­enth and eighth place, re­spec­tively.
