Due to Covid, the 2020 Men’s Canadian Gymnastics Championships were canceled. In 2021, the competition was postponed to be in person. After a long wait they decided against an in-person competition and went virtual. It was arranged that all eligible BC athletes would perform and record their routines together in Vancouver at the Phoenix Gymnastics Club.
Carson Ogg, a Campbell River gymnast who qualified to both Canadian Championships, 2020 and 2021, finally got his chance to perform at the competition alongside teammate Jackson Martin who qualified for his first time. The competition took place November 11-13th, however due to delays associated with virtual competitions and the shipment of awards, we are only now able to share the news.
Carson and Jackson trained hard to prepare for this competition and they had some great results creating history for our Campbell River club! This competition took place over 2 days. Day one established Team placement and individual All Around scores. Day 2 was Event Finals.
