Nanaimo gymnasts demonstrated toughness and more, and won Island championships. The Nanaimo Gymnastics School sent a contingent to the Islands at Campbell River last month.
Emma Gueldenstern won the all-around title in her Level 2 tyro category, a remarkable achievement considering that she broke her arm during the winter and her return to competition this season was questionable. She also won the Island crown on vault and was second on the uneven bars. In the same division, Ali Hunter won Island championships on the bars and the balance beam.
In Level 1 argo, Summer Simpson won the all-around championship and was best on the balance beam and Alyssa Schan placed second all-around, on beam and on the floor.
