22 gold, 22 silver, 17 bronze. Huge.

Talk about outstanding performances worth flipping for.

Last week, 46 local athletes with the North Peace Gymnastics Association (NPGA) competed in the Kopar Prince George Invitational.

“Despite all the fires at home and a few athletes’ families dealing with evacuation orders for their farms and homes, NPGA athletes put their personal struggles aside to truly represent the Peace Region and show how kind and welcoming the North really truly is,” says Mimi Lessard, NPGA coach.

In total, the club returns with 22 gold medals, 22 silver and 17 bronze. Overall, the athletes representing the North brought home a grand total of 58 ribbons, marking their placements between 4th-8th  on May 5-7.

Anika Carroll, Natalia Carroll and Kendal Huth received a trophy for Most Artistic Floor routines for their sessions. Morgan Andres received a trophy for most Dynamic Vault. Gemma Swanson and Anna Fowler each won a trophy for their beautiful routines.

“It was truly an amazing weekend filled with so many personal bests and new friends! Next up the athletes will be travelling to Quesnel for the Gold Pan Invitational and Zone 8 Championships taking place June 3rd and 4th,” says Lessard.
