The Cornwall Gymnastics Club will host its third annual Cotton Candy Classic competition this coming weekend.

A total of 240 athletes will showcase their talents and compete in this provincial qualifying event on Saturday, April 23rd and Sunday, April 24th.

“We’ve almost doubled the size of the competitive field this year and our club is very excited to welcome gymnasts from eastern Ontario,” says Loree Lalonde, Meet Director. “This is an exciting return for our event after the 2020-2021 competition season was cancelled.”

For the athletes, the meet is a chance to get together, see old friends, and cheer each other on. It’s also a moment when parents can watch the result of their child’s hard work.

The eight participating clubs are:

Cornwall Gymnastics Club
Club de gymnastique Les Sittelles (Orleans)
Corona School of Gymnastics (Ottawa)
Kingston Gymnastics Club (Kingston)
Rideau Gymnastics (Kanata)
Precision Gymnastics (Ottawa)
Kanata Gymnastics (Kanata)
TRYumph Gymnastics Academy (Gloucester)

Over the two-day event, gymnasts of all ages—including 27 from the Cornwall Gymnastics Club—will take to the bars, beam, floor, and vault. Nine Gymnastics Ontario judges from across the province will evaluate their skills and excellence.

“The Cotton Candy Classic is a great opportunity to showcase our community and our beautiful club to visitors,” says Lalonde. “All our local athletes, coaches, and volunteers look forward to putting on the best meet ever.”
