Victoria-Kayen Woo has wanted to represent Canada since watching the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games on TV and seeing the older girls who trained at her gym make the national team. She began competing internationally in 2012, winning gold in team and uneven bars, silver in all-around, and bronze in vault at the Junior Pan American Championships. She made her senior national debut in 2013. In 2014, Woo competed at her first FIG World Championships and was part of Canada’s fourth place finish in the team event at the Commonwealth Games. She also competed at the Pan American Championships. In 2015 she helped Canada win team bronze at the City of Jesolo Trophy. At the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto, Woo took bronze on the beam and helped the team to a silver medal in the team event.

Family: Parents Billy Woo and Maryse Ronda… Younger sister Rose-Kaying Woo is a member of the national junior gymnastics team…

Getting into the Sport: Started gymnastics at age 3 after seeing a newspaper page about the sport…

Outside Interests: Graduated École Secondaire De Mortagne in June 2015… Enjoys shopping, going to the movies…
