Canadian rhythmic gymnasts gained great experiences this weekend at the World Challenge Cup in Kazan, Russia this weekend. Canada competed in both the individual and group events. 

Canadian champion Carmen Whelan of Aurora, ON had strong performances in her hoop, ball and clubs routines but made mistakes in her ribbon routine. Whelan’s top performance came with a score of 14.300 points in the hoop. An overall score of 50.300 points put Whelan in 32nd place.

Katherine Uchida of Toronto, ON struggled during the competition finishing with 49.400 points to finish 36th overall. Uchida’s top performance came with a score of 13.050 points in the hoop.

Group members Elizabet Belittchenko, Renna Cukier, Cleo Page, Vanessa Panov, Anastasia Shanko, and Alexandra Udachina missed the finals in both events finishing in 11th place overall with a score of 28.400. The group’s five hoops routine, which landed them a sixth place finish in Minsk last week, was once again their top performance with a score of 14.850.
