Brandon’s Isabela Onyshko narrowly missed out on a team gymnastics medal on Tuesday at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.
Canada finished fourth in the women’s team final, a half-point short of Wales, which won the bronze medal.
Onyshko had her two best results of the qualification round, finishing seventh on the beam with a score of 13.133 and placing 14th on the floor at 12.966. Her beam routine was enough to qualify for the event final and helped her move up 10 spots in the all-around competition to sit in 10th place and qualify for today’s all-around final.
The youngest member of Canada’s Commonwealth Games contingent at 16, she will compete in the beam final on Friday.
Also on Friday, Brandon’s DeLohnni Nicol-Samuel, a 22-year-old who is representing St. Vincent and the Grenadines, will race in the 1,500-metre heats.
