Onyshko captures 3 medals at nationals

Isabela Onyshko returned home from the Canadian Gymnastics Championships in Ottawa with three medals and a big smile on her face.

The 15-year-old Brandonite, who was born in Minnedosa, reached most of her goals over the weekend by winning an all-around silver medal on Thursday and qualifying for three apparatus finals on Saturday.

She capped her solid week by scoring 14.325 on the beam to win a gold medal, 14.050 on the bars to win another silver and 13.875 on the floor to finish fourth.

“I think it was quite successful,” Onyshko said. “I definitely did better than I thought it was going to do. I made some personal improvements and reached some goals that I had, so that was quite successful.”

This was the first time Onyshko, who has competed in a pair of World Cup events, participated in nationals in the senior age group.

Her performance puts the 5-foot-1 Vincent Massey student in discussions to represent Canada at the Commonwealth Games, which run from July 23 to Aug. 3 in Glasgow, Scotland, although that will be determined by a working committee’s decision.

Onyshko believes she made a good case to make the team and admits it will be a few nerve-racking days until the squad is announced.

“I’m really excited,” she said. “It looks good and I don’t know if they’ll consider me and what they’re looking for, but it is exciting that I could be considered.”
