About: Corona Competitive clubmates Triton Huff-Boyle, Liam McLean and Yasir El Sakka earned 3 of the 4 local division championship titles from the Mar. 6-8 Ontario Cup men’s artistic gymnastics competition in Ottawa.

 

The young prospects respectively topped the Level 1 – Age 8, Level 2 – Age 10-11, and Level 4 – Under-13 all-around competitions, recording podium finishes on each apparatus.

Riley Gonzalez (Level 5) from the host Ottawa Gymnastics Centre was the other local all-around champion at the competition, while Tumblers’ Olivier Carriere, Rideau’s Jacob Martin, and Ottawa’s Toby Kagume and Owen Wendler also hit the all-around podium.

With the early-April Ontario Championships now cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the OGC meet with over 375 athletes marked the final provincial meet of the season.
