YMCA-YWCA of the National Capital Region Athlete of the Month: Ella Martel

–By Ottawa Sportspage

About: Ella Martel won the floor event and placed 2nd on vault to launch Ontario to a Level 8 team title at the Jan. 10-14 California Grand Invitational in Anaheim. The Nepean-Corona gymnast earned the sunny trip thanks to her strong performance at the Ontario Tour Selection meet back in November in Mississauga. Martel is also the only local athlete sitting atop a division’s standings for provincial championships qualifying (as of Sportspage press time). Her podium-packed performance (vault & floor gold, balance beam silver, and uneven bars bronze) at a Jan. 19 qualifier in Milton launched her into the leading position of the Level 8, Age 14 women’s category.
