2019 Masters gymnastics competition and celebration

8 Feb

Some info about the event:

Who: Adult gymnasts and coaches

What: Masters competition for men and demonstration for women 18+

Where: Oakville Gymnastics Club

When: Saturday, March 9, 2019

Why: Because you can

The call-to-meet can be accessed by following this link: Call to Meet

 

Masters is about proving that you’ve still got it.

This year will feature a competition on the men’s events and demonstration on the women’s events (non-judged).  This is due to a lack of judges available in Ontario for that weekend.  Ever thought of becoming a judge?  It can make a difference to events like this. Give it a shot if you’re interested!

It is a low-stress, fun meet with ages ranging from 18 to over 74+

“Adult” awards are given out, rather than medals and ribbons.

Sincerely,

Eric Laurin

Masters Event Director

MILLOUSI: I’M PROUD OF ALL THE OLDER GYMNASTS WHO KEEP GOING

MILLOUSI: I’M PROUD OF ALL THE OLDER GYMNASTS WHO KEEP GOING

Vasiliki Millousi didn’t have the best beam final at the European Championships with a fall on her mount but she was very proud of herself for making the final. The 34-year-old gymnast had to retire from the sport before the 2004 Olympics when she was told by her federation that she was “too old” for gymnastics and her every competition now not only proves them wrong but shows that older gymnasts can keep doing great in gymnastics.
