The Summerside Saultos Gymnastics Club hosted the 2016 Gymnastics PEI Provincial Championships over the weekend in Slemon Park. Over 170 gymnasts representing four clubs from across the island competed for the title of Provincial Champion and in hopes of qualifying for the Atlantic Championships in St John’s Newfoundland in April as well as the Eastern Canadian Championships in Quebec City in May. Gymnasts ranging in age from 8 to 19 competed in categories from beginner to National level.

Saultos club President Katherine Clow was very pleased with the competition saying, “This was the largest Provincial Championships that we have hosted. All sessions ran smoothly and on time thanks to all of our hard working volunteers!”

Coach Shelly Ferguson was very pleased with what she saw from the athletes. “The level of skills being performed has improved so much in the last few years” said Ferguson.

This bodes well for the future of Gymnastics in PEI says Gymnastics PEI President Paula Gallant. “Gymnastics is gaining in popularity on PEI. Our registrations are up over the past few years across the board whether in our pre-school and recreational programs or top level competitive athletes that you see here.”
