This past weekend, Panther Gymnastics Club hosted the Manitoba Open Championships. Sydney McEachern captured first place honors and earned a spot on the “Team Manitoba”, which will compete at the Western Canadian Championships on May 21-27th.

Sydney won the vault title with a 13.7 competing her FTY. On bars Sydney competed a beautiful straddle yaeger to bail handstand, straight through to a clear hip handstand step down. She scored a 12.14 for 2nd place. On floor she opens with a huge full in! The height on this skill is amazing, in fact I watched it a few times, wondering if they gave her credit for a piked full in. She scored a season high of 13.4 for the first place win. On her final event, balance beam she mounts with a clean press handstand and goes into her series: where she sticks her layout solid. She does a beautiful switch leap to side somi and dismounts with a high-flying double pike dismount! A great routine scoring a 12.4 for third place. Sydney captured the all around title with a season high 51.64.

Sydney had a great meet, and she is peaking at the right time. I can’t wait to see how she does in May and the Championships!
