Sydney McEachern Vaults her way into Westerns!

Sydney McEachern had a great meet at this weekend’s Western Championships held in Langley, British Columbia. She helped Team Manitoba take the first place trophy home.

In the Women’s National Open all around competition, Sydney had a beautiful full twisting yurchenko on vault that captured a 4th place finish with a 13.4. She came in 3rd on bars with a 12.75. Her high-flying Jaeger continues to amaze me. She had a little too much power in her floor routine in her first pass, a full twisting double back, which gave her an uncharacteristic score of 12.35. Her You Tube Videos continue to show how much height she gets on this skill. She is one of a few gymnasts who I see land this skill with her chest up.

She is such a strong competitor and proved it in the event finals. I think she is Manitoba’s top vaulter and she is proving me right with a score of 13.7, which ties her personal best score from the Manitoba Open. She placed 3rd on vault in the event finals.

I will have videos of her routines from this meet up later in the week. Until then, you can watch her powerful routines on her You Tube site. I have also updated her website.

Sydney will compete in the Canadian National Championships in Regina, Saskatchewan on May 20-27th.
