Given the ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gymnastics Canada made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person Elite Canada event in women’s and men’s artistic gymnastics. Rather than hosting a virtual Elite Canada competition, MAG hosted a one-day technical trial ahead of the 2022 Canadian National Championships.

In the senior competition, Jesse Tyndall finished first All-Around with a total score of 83.149. Tyndall finished in first place in the floor, parallel bars, and high bars events. Félix Dolci finished in second place All-Around with a total score of 82.998. Rounding out the podium in the senior category, Charles-Étienne Légaré finished in third place All-Around with a total score of 76.183.

“Of course, I would have loved to have a regular in-person competition for Elite Canada. It’s unfortunate that we were unable to do that this year but placing first in the technical trials as the replacement was still an amazing feeling and I’m grateful we were given the opportunity,” shared Tyndall on his performance. “Throughout my NCAA season this year, I was able to train and compete All Around more times than previous years, and I think just having more competition experience on all six events really helped build my confidence and impacted my success.”

In the junior competition, first place All-Around was awarded to Xavier Olasz with a total score of 77.633. Olasz finished in first place in the floor, rings, and high bars events. Victor Canuel finished in second place All-Around after an exceptional performance in the vault event. Canuel finished the competition with a total score of 72.799. Jack Stargratt-Sweeney finished in third place All-Around, taking the final place on the podium with a total score of 72.649.
