Mia Weir brought home the 2B Junior All Around Championship from the Planet Rhythmics Invitational at Capilano University in North Vancouver, March 11-13.

This is Mia’s first year in the competitive level, and coach Sang-Hee Robinson says Mia is thriving by setting goals and with hard work.

“She is always pushing herself to see the next challenge. She sets high goals for herself and for her groups.

“Mia is also our junior coach-in-training who has shown her leadership and ability to show and teach in a positive and encouraging way. Her future in our club as a competitor and as a coach is a great gift to all of us in our club.”

The SCRG team keeps busy with different competitions; next on the list is the BC Gymnaestrada in Richmond Olympic Oval, May 7-8.

“All the BC Gymnaestrada team members worked hard all year long to prepare a 10-minute routine to show.

“This event has over 30 clubs from all over the [British Columbia] and 600 gymnasts participating.”
