(1 vote, average 5.00 out of 5)



Canada dominated the 11th Olympic Hopes Cup, held Thursday to Saturday in Liberec, Czech Republic, winning 14 out of 16 gold medals.

Canada's Ana Padurariu swept the women's competition at the Olympic Hopes Cup, held Thursday to Saturday in Liberec, Czech Republic. Canada dominated the men's portion of the competition, with seven of the eight gold medals.

The junior competition attracted more than 75 gymnasts from nine nations, including Australia, Canada, France, Great Britain and South Africa.

A strong squad of Canadian hopefuls delivered, winning both team and all-around titles. Ana Padurariu won all six gold medals in the women's competition, while Canadian junior champion William Émard won the all-around and two apparatus golds.

Canada scored 219.20 to win the competition by more than 10 points ahead of Great Britain (208.55), followed by the host Czech team (199.85). Great Britain, led by Amelie Morgan, performed well on vault but fell behind with low scores on bars and beam.

"The competition is called Olympic Hopes Cup, so we all came hoping to do our best and hopefully represent Canada in the future at Olympic Games," Padurariu said. "Our hope is to make the 2020 Olympics and this competition is a great start for the next Olympic cycle."

Padurariu, 14, trains under 1980 Olympic champion Yelena Davydova at Gemini Gymnastics in Ontario. Padurariu is of Romanian descent, as is her teammate Victoria Jurca of Quebec.

In the all-around, Padurariu (57.15) took the gold medal over Morgan (55.10). Padurariu's Gemini clubmate Jade Chrobok, who turns senior in 2017, won the all-around bronze (54.30).

The Canadian men scored 314.00 to take the team title over Hungary (310.90) and France (307.80)

"The competition was good today; it’s early in the year for us and a great warm up for the season," said Markos Baikas, junior and youth national team coach for Canada. "We had some higher expectations for the scoring, but are very happy with the results today."

In a tight all-around competition, Émard (78.70) took the title over Poland's Paweł Kaśków (78.60), with Canada's Ioannis Chronopoulos taking bronze (78.45).

The Canadian men won four golds in finals: Émard on still rings and vault, Anthony Tawfik on pommel horse, and Ioannis Chronopoulos in a three-way tie for first on high bar.

France's Tom Masia Pacholczyk won floor exercise. Hungary's Krisztián Balázs won parallel bars and tied for first on high bar with Chronopoulos and Poland's Kacper Garnczarek.
