CANUSA games

August 18, 2010 - GOB Gymnastics took part in North America's largest and longest running international games last weekend.

On Aug. 7, the local gym sent three gymnastics to the CANUSA games, a competition 53 years running that focuses on giving amateur athletes a chance to showcase their talents across the Canadian-United States border.

Amanda Frezza, GOB head team coach, said the gym has taken part in the games for four years. This year's local gymnasts were Savannah Leist, 9-year-old Goodrich student; Olivia McGeachy, 14-year-old Brandon student; and India Tailor, 11-year-old Goodrich student.

"The girls showed well," Frezza said. "We competed against the Canadian gymnasts for a trophy and the US won with an excess of six points over Canada."

The gymnasts' ages ranged from 8 to 18 and there were 34 total between the two countries.

"The gymnastics competition is a chance for many girls to participate in an international experience," said Jennifer Rainville, coordinator for the gymnastics competition.
