2016 Rio Olympic Games Wrap-up

The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, BRA wrapped up on August 21 with many amazing and memorable performances from our Canadian gymnasts, including another gold medal for Rosie MacLennan in trampoline and a best-ever Canadian performance by Ellie Black in the women’s artistic gymnastics individual all-around competition.

Let’s not forget either that it was a gymnast – Rosie MacLennan – who led Team Canada into the Opening Ceremonies! A first for our sport.

Here is a summary of their results and performances.
