Clay helps Canada win bronze
Zachary Clay helped Canada win the team bronze medal in artistic gymnastics at the Commonwealth Games in Scotland.
“It was a great opportunity for me to compete in Scotland,” said Clay, who has aspirations of competing at the 2016 Olympics.
“It gave me real insight as to what high-level athletes are doing from other countries.”
Clay competed in the pommel horse, rings, high bar, vault and parallel bars.
The Games ran July 23 to Aug. 4.
The 19-year-old is a former Langley resident who now lives in Chilliwack, got his start in the sport at Langley’s Flip City Gymnastics Club.
He now trains with Abbotsford's Twisters Gymnastics — as well as the national team — under former Olympians Richard and Ken Ikeda.
