World Age Groups Pics 1

Here is the first of several posts that will show off the events of the 2012 World Age Group Championships for Acrobatic Gymnastics.  Team Canada had 11 athletes from four clubs: Okanagan Gymnastics Club (OGC west), Calgary Acro, Gymnastics Mississauga, and the Oakville Gymnastics Club (OGC central). There is also OGC east Ottawa Gymnastics Club. 

The 7th World Age Group Championships for Acrobatic Gymnastics took place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida.

Mickey opened the event.

Cory Marsh, Tessa Chiricosta and Jack McGarr won the draw to march in with the flag.

Even Tandori Poulet gets in our photos.  This is Adele Lefevre and Madie Arnold of Kelowna, BC string a pose.

Here is the team with the some of the cast of the Cirque du Soleil show La Nouba backstage at the show.  Alex Seifert (bottom right) was on the Canadian Senior Men's Tumbling team and so was David Poireir (top left) in 2003.  

Family acrobatics is bound to be a new event.

Some of the Cirque du Soleil cast were part of the Senior World's closing ceremony.

Another picture of the team at La Nouba and this time in the back you can see Mike Barnes formerly of the British National tumbling team and World Games Medalist in Power Tumbling.
