Chaplin named western champ at nationals

A number of Mission athletes also placed well at the Delta Invitational

Steve Chaplin is the 2012 Western Canadian national youth champion.

Mission’s Steven Chaplin clinched the 2012 Western Canadian national youth champion title in the first weekend of May.

He qualified for event finals on all events and brought home gold on floor, pommel, rings, vault, parallel bars, and a bronze on high bar.

Chaplin was one of seven Twisters athletes to compete in the event that was held in Langley.


Delta Invitational

The youngest Twisters athletes from the women’s competitive team had their turn to shine last weekend at the Delta Invitational while competing in the KIP 2 category.

Several older athletes from the men’s and the women’s teams also competed. The athletes entered the cash and carry event, which is judged differently than usual competitions and in which the gymnasts have the opportunity to win a few hard-earned dollars.

Forty athletes from various different levels and age-groups competed in the men’s cash and carry. The top three on events and the top six all-around won money. Twenty-nine athletes, including some of the best in Canada, competed on the women’s side and were provincial level five or higher.

Mission Twisters’ results:

• Zoe Rumsby: gold on beam, silver (tie) on floor, bronze on bars and all-around.

• Alexandra Robson: fourth on floor, seventh all-around.

• Hannah Wood: eighth all-around.

• Steven Chaplin: bronze on rings, fourth on vault and all-around, tied for fourth on parallel bars, fifth on floor.
