Emma Yau concluded a standout competitive rhythmic gymnastics season with a silver medal at the June 7-9 Ontario Championships at the Markham Pan Am Centre. Yau was on the podium for each of her three apparatuses (hoop, clubs and choice) to place 2nd all-around in the top provincial level for age 13-15 athletes. She also earned a second provincial silver medal alongside her Kanata Rhythmic Gymnastics Club teammates in the aesthetic group gymnastics senior division. Yau’s top result this season was in April when she became the all-around Eastern Canadian regional champion in the L5C division.
