Vaculik, Gafuik Continue Reign in Regina
(2 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)


Senior all-around champions Kristina Vaculik (Gemini) and Nathan Gafuik (Univ. of Calgary) struck more gold Saturday as the 2012 Canadian Gymnastics Championships concluded in Regina, Sask.

Vaculik — who won her third career senior all-around title on Thursday — added individual golds on uneven bars (14.400) and balance beam (14.600), as well as the silver medal on floor exercise.

Vaculik, 19, now leads the contenders for Canada's squad for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Coached by 1980 Olympic all-around champion Yelena Davydova, Vaculik is taking the year off from her studies at Stanford University to train for London.

Ellie Black (Halifax Alta) won the gold medal on vault and the bronze medal on floor exercise (2 1/2 twist to triple twist). All-around runner-up Victoria Moors (Dynamo) won floor exercise with an exquisite combination of tumbling and artistry (watch).

The full women's squad to London will be decided after a final trials in June in Quebec.

The Canadian men qualified only one gymnast to the 2012 Olympics, and Gafuik seems certain of claiming the spot after his all-around victory. He added the gold medal on high bar to cap off his successful championships in Regina.
