Brandon’s Isabela Onyshko had a great gold-medal-winning performance at the prestigious L’International Gymnix competition in Montreal over the weekend.
The 15-year-old member of the Brandon Eagles Gymnastics Club, who was born in Minnedosa but now lives in the Wheat City, placed first in the uneven bars final with a score of 13.925 and finished fourth all-around in a field of 32 elite international gymnasts from six countries, including Canada, Russia, Italy and Belgium. Reigning Canadian champion Ellie Black won the all-around competition and was third behind Onyshko on bars.
Onyshko, who finished sixth overall at Elite Canada in February in her first foray into senior women’s competition, is trying to crack Canada’s team that will compete in the Commonwealth Games and
the Senior Pan-American Championships this year. Onyshko made the junior national team last year and competed internationally for Canada in France in November.
