“Canada has a strong team heading into the Jr. Pan American Championships next week with both the individual and group members having competed in international competitions this spring with promising results. The plan is to perform clean and consistent routines in order to achieve our goal of a top three finish in both individual and group. Our athletes are eager to use this event as their final preparation for the upcoming Junior World Championships in July,” said Teresa Orr, National Team Director for rhythmic gymnastics at Gymnastics Canada.

“The team is then very excited that they will kick off the first Junior World Championships as well as being the first international competitors ever to perform in Moscow’s brand new state of the art RG arena.

This will be a great experience for our team and a real eye opener, with tough competition from some of the top countries like Russia, Ukraine, and Bulgaria.”
