Adrian Heemels earned a silver medal and Brittany Falconer placed seventh in the Senior Women’s Individual Trampoline to lead the Funtastic Gymnastics club of Port Hardy last week at the Elite Canada and second provincial trampoline gymnastics trials in Kamloops.

Heemels placed second in the Provincial 1-level individual trampoline and added a 19th-place showing in Provincial 1 women’s double-mini trampoline.

Cassidy Mose added a sixth-place finish, in Provincial 2 double-mini trampoline, and Macy Hurley had a pair of top-10 finishes by placing seventh in individual and ninth in double-mini in the Provincial 1 class.

Falconer competed in the highest-level category, against a field that included Olympic gold medalist Rosie McLennan and Olympic alternate Samantha Smith.

In other results for the local club, Mose placed 12th in Provincial 2 women’s individual trampoline, and Ashley Cadwallader placed 15th in Provincial 1 individual and 17th in Provincial 1 double-mini trampoline.

Club members depart again this weekend for the Mar. 28-30 Trampoline Gymnastics Provincial championships and third provincial trials.
