Best of The West Underway in Richmond

One of the largest gymnastics meets in British Columbia is happening this weekend at the Richmond Olympic Oval. Hosted by Delta Gymnastics Society and Gymnastics BC, the Best of the West Gymnastics Fest is essentially four events in one. The Western Canadian Championships feature provincial teams from BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon and NWT.  The Delta Invitational  has been a long standing competition that attracts competitors from Interclub to JO 8. This year athletes from as far away as Ontario are attending.

Sunday will feature the BC Gymnaestrada- a celebration of gymnastics as a performance and a life-sport. Performance teams from across  Canada are in attendance including The Dynamos of Edmonton, with an average age of  70!

The finale of the festival is the Cash and Carry Cup- a unique competition where athletes of different levels compete together and win prize money. Overall 1800 athletes will be performing at the Oval.

 

 

 

 

 

Competition began yesterday and continues throughout the weekend. Gymnaestrada is sold out but if you’re in the Vancouver area it’s going to be worth your while to come out and see a session or two and support gymnastics in BC!

Gymspired Media is providing continuing coverage on Instagram and Twitter and video will be available on YouTube after the conclusion of the competition.
