Two of our Revolution athletes, Charlie Radencich and Maya Zonneveld, participated in their first international competition. The two athletes traveled to France to compete at the ‘22e Tournoi International de Combs-la-ville’. This competition was host to International Junior competitors from 10 countries.
Charlie had an excellent competition, competing new Junior level routines for the first time this season.
Maya qualified to floor and vault finals, and there earned a fourth place on floor, and a silver medal on vault.
Following a very successful Nationals competition, three of our gymnasts were featured in the Record:
Three athletes from Revolution Gymnastics — Maya Zonneveld, Charlise Radencich and Annie Clarmo — have a lot to be proud of after the 2018 Canadian Artistic Gymnastics Championships, held from May 24-27 at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex.
Revolution Gymnastics was opened by Aaron and Angela Brokenshire in 2004. Both of them were national level gymnasts and professional coaches.
When it first opened, Angela Brokenshire said they were more focused on recreational introductory level classes, but as the community became more interested in their programming, they ended up selecting athletes to move from the recreational program to a more competitive program.
In 2010, the gym relocated to its present location and has about 750 athletes in the recreational program and about 150 in the competitive program.
Canadian Gymnastics Championships
Zonneveld, 13, competed in the high-performance novice category and was crowned the floor champion, obtained a bronze medal on vault and a silver medal in the all-around competition. According to Aaron Brokenshire, she is the second-best gymnast in the country under 13 years-old.
She started gymnastics when she was just 18-months-old at the Cambridge Kips Gymnastics Club and said what she loves most about the sport is the satisfaction she feels after doing a really good routine. She said her results at nationals made her feel really happy.
"I was still shocked and surprised because I didn't think I did that well," said Zonneveld.
She said she loves attending the gym because of how supportive everyone is and because her coaches — the Brokenshires and Sarah Fischer — have good techniques and say the right things in order to make her gymnastics better.
Radencich, 14, competed in the JO Level 10 (age 12-15) category and represented Team Ontario in her first nationals appearance. She had a sixth-place finish on uneven bars and beam, and took seventh place on vault and the all-around competition.
She said what keeps her successful is setting goals for herself.
"I set goals and then I try to get there," said Radencich. "I like to work hard because I feel accomplished when I do."
Radencich started when she was 17-months-old at Guelph Saultos Gymnastics and came to Revolution when she was 12.
"I came here because the other club was focusing more on the recreational program so I wasn't going to be able to get to where I want to go," said Radencich.
She said she wants to pursue the sport for a long time and wants to obtain an athletic scholarship to a university in the United States.
In fact, this is the goal of all three of these athletes, as they look up to the four gymnasts who trained at their gym — Stefanie Merkle, Casey Carvalho, Sydney Townsend and Kristen Peterman who received athletic scholarships to various universities in the U.S.
According to Angela Brokenshire, Peterman came back from college to help the girls out at nationals, which meant a lot to them.
"She kept them calm and told them 'hey I have been here before and you guys are doing great,'" said Angela Brokenshire.
Clarmo, 14, started when she was 18-months-old at Base Borden Gymnastics Club in Borden, Ont., and came to Revolution when she was around ten. Along with Radencich, she also competed in the JO Level 10 category and represented Team Ontario. She came eighth place on vault and 13th in the all-around competition.
This weekend our Revolution athletes were simply spectacular as they competed against the best in the country at this years National Championships.
It was golden for Maya Zonneveld who was crowned the National Novice HP floor champion securing the medal with a beautiful routine packed with difficulty. Maya also earned the bronze medal on vault with a beautiful yurchenko full. Her strong performance both days also earned her the silver medal in the all around competition!!! Absolutely outstanding performance Maya🎉
Annie Clarmo and Charlie Radencich represented team Ontario in the JO 10 category. Both Annie and Charlie helped their team earn the silver medal with consistent and solid performances. Both girls qualified for day 2 finals and continued with their successful performances in the individual competition.
Charlie finished 6th on beam and bars and placed 7th on vault and all around in her very first National appearance. Way to go Charlie!
Annie hit 8/8 routines over 2 days and finished 8th on vault with a beautiful stuck landing and placed 13th AA. Well done Annie!
Congratulations to Maya, Charlie and Annie and coaches Aaron, Ange and Sarah on an outstanding year! What a great way to end the season.
And now on to summer training. We can't wait to see what next season brings!
