Savona, Moors, Payne Win Twice at Canadian Championships
(5 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Three gymnasts each took two apparatus titles as the Canadian championships concluded Saturday in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

Ontario's Jessica Savona (Oakville) won gold medals on senior balance beam and floor exercise. Savona won the silver medal in the senior women's all-around final Thursday behind Madeline Gardiner (Cambridge Kips).

"I came here expecting to hit my routines," Savona said. "I wasn't expecting to win on beam and my floor wasn't as good as in the all around but I'm proud of how I did."

Bianca Jordaan, also of Oakville, won the senior women's vault final over Canadian-American Emma Sibson. Sibson is registered with British Columbia's Omega Gymnastics, but trains at Zenith Elite in Texas.

Québec's Bianca Dancose-Giambattisto (Gym-Richelieu) won the uneven bars title over Ontarian Dominique Pegg (Bluewater).

Senior men's all-around champion Jackson Payne (Calgary) picked up four more medals, including golds on floor exercise and pommel horse. Earlier this month, Payne competed at the Chinese championships and Moscow World Cup.

"It was a bit of a rough week in training before coming here," Payne said. "I felt a little worn out after getting back from Russia. It was a big mental challenge to get ready and feel confident but it went pretty well."

Several junior gymnasts advanced to the senior men's finals. Junior all-around champion Mathieu Csukassy, 17, of Montréal's IMCO qualified to four finals, and won the silver medal on high bar. (A separate junior event finals did not take place; event medals were determined over two days of all-around competition.)

Junior women's all-around champion Victoria Moors (Cambridge Kips) added titles on uneven bars and floor exercise.
