All routines from 2020 Elite Canada RG can be found right here on FloGymnastics.
Katherina Bakhmutova (junior) - Rope
Only juniors compete rope, and Bakhmutova won the apparatus with this routine. She had nice fouette turns but also had bit of trouble reaching for one of her catches. But it was otherwise a good performance and had one of the highest difficulty scores.
Sophie Crane (senior) - Ball
Crane had one of the only ball routines that scored 20.000+. Her big difficulty of 12.100 helped her win the event, in addition to having the second-best execution score on the apparatus among seniors. Her routine includes a good variety in movement and catches.
Grace - Senior FIG 3 Hoops 2 Clubs
The Grace Rhythmic Gymnastics senior FIG group had the highest difficulty among the two senior FIG groups at 8.700. They weren't in sync for a few turn sequences but did well on leaps. For one of their throws, it took a bit too much time to get in position, but their difficulty made them hard to beat.
Christina Savchenko (junior) - Clubs
The younger Savchenko sister (her sister Elizabeth competes as a senior) was the gold-medal winner in clubs for juniors. She had the highest execution score, and one of her highest difficulty scores comes on this event. In addition, it's also one of the highest difficulty scores among the juniors overall.
Silhouettes of York - Junior 5 Hoops
This group's 5 hoops routine was their higher scoring routine of the competition. It has great difficulty at 12.700. Their synchronicity is slightly off but not terribly so where it's distracting. The synchronicity of their fouette turns is pretty good but their form could be cleaner throughout.
Katherine Uchida (senior) - Hoop
Uchida won this apparatus with a personal-best score of 21.000. This routine had some of the best execution in the meet at 8.800. One highlight of this routine was a beautiful ring turn to Y turn combo.
Michel Vivier (senior) - ribbon
Vivier was the senior apparatus winner for ribbon, which is generally a lower scoring event overall. Her ribbon routine has one of the highest difficulty scores at a 11.100 that helped her earn the only score above 19.000 on the event. The senior gymnast has nice turns and a fun catch at the end of her routine.
