Treyson Cerrato of the Surrey Gymnastic Society has qualified for the Western Canada Summer Games in Wood Buffalo, Alberta in August.
The South Surrey resident has won three consecutive B.C. championships. This past April, Cerrato, 13, competed in the Provincial 5 category and had the best score on parallel bars. He also won a silver medal on pommel horse, rings and high bar, and was fourth on floor and fifth on vault.
One of three all around champions from the Surrey Gymnastics Society (SGS), Cerrato was also the overall gold medalist last year in Kamloops in the Elite 4 category, and in 2013 in Prince George in the Provincial 4 group.
He qualified for the Western Canada Summer Games earlier this month in Kelowna, and is among 12 members of Team BC.
“British Columbia has a strong tradition of success in gymnastics at the Western Canada Summer Games,” said Team BC Chef de Mission Diane St-Denis. “I know that these athletes will be tremendous competitors and represent Team BC and their sport very well at the Games this August.”
