Road to Rio

Team Canada

I have finally gotten all my posts planned for the lead up to Rio!  Here is team Canada, a team that not very many people talk about being a team contender but did place fifth last year in London so they have the history of being a top team.  These D-Scores are taken from Canada’s Nationals at the end of May and beginning of June.

Name VT UB BB FX AA
Isabela Onyshko 5.8 6.3 6.5 5.7 24.3
Ellie Black 5.8 5.8 6.4 5.8 23.8
Brittany Rogers 5.8 6.3 5.7 5.2 22.8
Shallon Olsen 5.8 5.2 5.9 6.1 22.6
Rose-Kaying Woo 5.0 5.7 5.8 5.4 21.9
VT UB BB FX Total
17.4 18.4 18.7 17.6 71.6

It’s a lot higher than I was expecting, and it really proves that they have a great chance of making team finals and doing really well there.  Something I have noticed recently is how great Isabela Onyshko has become recently.  For so long, Ellie Black has been Canada’s best gymnast but it seems that times has past with Onyshko now.  Look for her to have a great Olympics and possibly make an event final.

  1. USA – 77.3
  2. CHN – 77.0*
  3. GBR – 74.7
  4. RUS – 74.5

*due to the recent rumors of Liu Tingting’s injury and replacement with Tan Jiaxin, this total may be incorrect.
