Team Canada takes fourth in Texas

Team Canada kicked off the 2017 season with a strong performance at the RD761 Junior International Competition in Houston, Texas. The event was named after Ricky Deci, a Houston gymnast who died of a heart condition when he was a Junior.

Placing 4th AA, Team Canada was led by William Emard from Quebec, who achieved a gold medal on rings and silver on vault. 

Sole BC athlete Darren Wong (Phoenix) put in a strong showing, placing 4th on both floor and parallel bars, and 7th on rings. 

Other BC participants included Coach Alexander Pozdniakov and Judge John Carroll.
