Medals for Surrey gymnasts

Local athletes fare well at Twisters Gym Club Invitational earlier this month in Abbotsford.

A handful of Surrey gymnasts snagged medals at the Twisters Gym Club Invitational earlier this month in Abbotsford.

The meet was one of the biggest on the local gymnastics calendar, with competitors coming from across B.C. and as far away as Nova Scotia and Japan.

At the Provincial 5 level, Surrey Gymnastic Society’s Treyson Cerrato, a 14-year-old South Surrey resident, won all-around gold after capturing top spot in five of six events.

Cerrato won gold in floor, pommel horse, rings, vault and high-bar, while placing fifth on parallel bars.

Emanuel Gutierrez Sandoval, 12, won a slew of medals – gold on the floor and parallel bars, silver on pommel horse and vault, and bronze on the high bar.

His performance was also enough to net him a silver all-around medal in the Elite 4 division.

In Elite 3 competition, SGS’s Carter Baker, 10, won an all-around bronze medal after a silver-medal win on the floor, bronze on rings, parallel bars and high bar, and sixth-place finishes on pommel horse and vault.

In the Provincial 3 (under 13) division, Luke Van Harmelen won the all-around bronze medal, highlighted by a gold-medal performance on parallel bars and a bronze-medal win on high bar. He also placed fourth on rings and fifth on floor. In the same competition, SGS teammate Timothy Azhogin, 13, placed fifth all-around. He won silver on rings and parallel bars, bronze on floor and was fourth on pommel horse.

Reggie Quintana, 10, rounded out the strong performances for SGS, placing seventh all-around in the Provincial 2 (10-and-under) competition.

His best rankings of the meet were a fifth-place finish on pommel horse and a sixth on floor.
