Black, Payne Win Canadian Championships
(3 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Ellie Black and Jackson Payne claimed the senior titles at the 2015 Canadian Gymnastics Championships, which ended Sunday in Gatineau, Quebec.

The competition also served as a selection event for this summer's Pan American Games in Toronto. The Canadian teams for the event will be announced on June 4, Gymnastics Canada stated.

"I'm hoping to be named to that team," said Black on Sunday. "I think we’ll have a really great team going into Pan Ams just by how the girls competed here at nationals, so I’m very excited."

Black, from Halifax, captured her third consecutive title on Sunday, topping Manitoba's Isabela Onyshko by .4, 57.950-57.550. Quebec's Rose-Kaying Woo claimed the bronze (55.000) after a missed routine on uneven bars, usually her strongest event.

Black said she was very pleased with her effort on Sunday, where she scored highs of 14.800 on vault (Tsukahara 2 1/2) and balance beam (double turn; piked front; ff two-foot layout; ff, tucked full). Individually, Black won the gold medal on balance beam, the silver medals on vault and uneven bars, and the bronze on floor exercise.

On Saturday, Payne comfortably recaptured the all-around title he had won four years ago. He scored 83.500 to top Quebec's René Cournoyer (81.950), who just edged Nova Scotia's Hugh Smith (81.900).

"I felt like I could come here and win it, that was my goal," Payne said. "I’m happy with the result but I know I can do better. I was about 70 percent of what I thought I can do in the next few months, and it goes right along with my plan to gear up for the Pan Am Games and the world championships."
