The Elite Canada competition wrapped up on Sunday evening, and in the three days of competition there was plenty of excitement. All novice, junior, and senior sessions are available to rewatch on FloGymnastics

The senior competition was highly anticipated, as many beloved gymnasts took the stage. After Day 1, Ana Padurariu was winning by almost a point, followed by Brooklyn Moors in second place and Isabela Onyshko in third place, half a point behind second. After Day 2 the podium stayed the same, with Ana Padurariu taking first all-around with a 106.865, Brooklyn Moors in second with a 106.414, and Isabela Onyshko with a 103.981. 

Padurariu started her competition on vault, competing a full twisting Yurchenko. She then moved to bars, where she hit her routine and landed a full-in dismount. On beam she showed off an incredible routine, especially her side aerial back layout back layout. Her only issue was a pause between her aerial and switch leap to sheep jump, but she solidified the routine with a strong double pike dismount. She finished with a clean floor routine, giving her first on beam and second on floor.

Moors was such a unique gymnast to watch because she competes many unusual skills, and her performance at Elite Canada was no exception. After a front handspring front pike half on vault and front handspring front tuck and a front walkover rudi dismount on beam, Moors not only finished second all-around, but second on bars, beam, and first on floor. Rightfully so, Twitter exploded with love for her beam dismount, a front walkover Rudi. 


Isabela Onyshko went home with third all-around and third on bars and floor. Onyshko competed a full twisting Yurchenko, clean bar and beam routines, and a simple yet elegant floor routine, which ended in a double pike.

On beam she narrowly missed the podium, taking fourth after a few wobbles on her side somi and leap series.

Zonneveld began the final competition with a full twisting Yurchenko on vault, solid performances on bars and beam, and finished with a packed floor routine that earned her second place on the event.

Cassie Lee took second place all-around, scoring a 99.231 to take the title. Lee also took first on beam and third on floor and had a good weekend despite a fall on bars. She stayed in the top few places at first, but after her fall on bars her placement fell to fifth, but a strong beam routine pulled her back up to second place and she stayed there after floor. Her beam showed off an incredible side aerial back layout back layout series, side somi, roundoff back layout, and a roundoff back handspring double full dismount — quite a jam-packed routine for a junior.
