A penchant for doing handstands wherever and whenever he could prompted Denis’ parents to sign him up for gymnastics at the age of three. He loves the feeling of being upside down as there is a level of calmness that comes with it. Denis prides himself on being 100% himself no matter where he goes or what he’s doing. He sincerely believes that being 100% natural is the best way to live life. Only you can be you, so embrace it and be proud of it!
Most memorable moment: The 2007 World Championships where he placed 2nd on double-mini. It was hosted in Quebec City so the crowd support throughout the competition was phenomenal and his entire family got to be there watching and supporting him.
Odds and ends: Really admires Karen Cockburn for continuing to push her limits… Would love to take dance classes.
