A baker's dozen from Langley on Team BC

A dozen members of the Langley Gymnastics Foundation and one Langley athlete who competes for Abbotsford’s Twisters Gymnastics will be going for gold as part of Team B.C.

Altogether, there are 69 athletes on Team BC.

The athletes will represent their province at next week’s Western Canadian gymnastics championships in Saskatoon. The event runs April 24 to 26 and the athletes were selected based on their results at a trial last month in Kamloops.

Competing for the women’s artistic gymnastics team will be Haley Biggin, Lauren Van Harmelen, Sophia Walters and Stephanie Bedry.

And on the men’s artistic gymnastics team are Ben Strybos, Brandon MacDonald, Luke Van Harmelen, Maddy Woznica, Ryder Croome, Trevor Ma, Tyler Welch, Victor Blaine and Kyle Machibroda-Ames. Machibroda-Ames trains with Twisters.
