- Taking home the gold medal for Women’s Team was Destira’s home team – U.S.A., while Canada and Brazil scored second and third places, respectively.
- Canada’s Ellie Black earned gold in the Women’s All Around category. The 19-year old from Halifax, Nova Scotia, also took home a bronze medal in Vault and gold in Floor.
- Our Women’s All Around silver medalist was U.S.A.’s Madison Desch. Seventeen-year-old Madison, who trains at the Great American Gymnastics Express Club in Blue Springs, Missouri, also earned 4th place in Floor.
- Our gold and silver medalists in the women’s Individual All-Around category are both from Team U.S.A. Taking first place is Laura Zeng, a 15-year old who got her start in gymnastics at age seven. Laura also received a gold medal for her individual performances in hoop, ball, clubs and ribbon – amazing!
- Individual All-Around silver medalist, Jasmine Kerber from Illinois, also earned a silver medal in the individual hoop, ball and ribbon categories, as well as bronze in Individual Clubs.
- Considering the individual success from Team U.S.A. competitors, it was no surprise the group scored the silver medal in Group All Around, while Brazil took the gold medal and Cuba nabbed the bronze medal.
Trampoline Gymnastics Our trampoline gymnasts know how to get air and work it while they’re up there. Competitors show their stuff in three individual routines and then Women’s Individual winners are named based on their performances. This year’s medals went to Rosannagh MacLennan of Canada (gold), Dafne Lavarro Loza of Mexico (silver) and Karen Cockburn of Canada (bronze). A huge congrats from the Destira team to all of the ladies who competed. We realize how much work it took to get there, and we commend you for your accomplishments. You’re all winners in our book!
