Isabela Onyshko: Sixth in the country

Brandon’s Isabela Onyshko showed she can compete with the best Olympic-calibre gymnasts in the country over the weekend.

The 15-year-old member of the Brandon Eagles Gymnastics Club placed sixth overall among 29 competitors in the senior women’s division at the Elite Canada championships that wrapped up Sunday in Gatineau, Que. Victoria Moors, who was 10th in the world last year, won the Elite Canada title.

In a breakthrough performance while going head-to-head with Canada’s best female gymnasts for the first time, Onyshko posted an all-around score of 52.050 and just missed medalling with a fourth-place finish in floor exercises. Onyshko, who was born in Minnedosa but now lives in Brandon, also cracked the top 10 in both vault (seventh) and uneven bars (10th), while also placing 13th on beam.

Onyshko, who made the national junior team last season and competed for Canada in France in November, is trying to make the national senior team that will compete in the Commonwealth Games and Senior Pan-American Championships this season.
