World Gymnastics is BACK!

And so is Canadian Brittany Rogers.

If you all remember, in May 2010 while at the Pacific Rim Championships in Melbourne, Australia, Canadian gymnast Brittany Rogers sustained a broken ankle while dismounting the Balance Beam.

After a year filled with surgeries, visits to her surgeon, rehabbing, getting back in shape, learning new routines and getting back on track, Brittany is looking amazing. She just finished up her All-Around final session at the 2011 Canadian Gymnastics Championships, held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. She grabbed the 16th (and final) qualifying position from Tuesday’s qualification round to advance into the All-Around final, as well as earning places in the Vault and Uneven Bars finals later this week.

In tonight’s competition, Brittany showed just how great an athlete she really is by moving from 16th place after qualifications to 4th in the Final.

All accounts from the final out in PEI are raving about Brittany being back.

I, for one, am ecstatic!

Congrats to Brittany on your 4th place finish after more than a year out of competition! Great job!

Congratulations to new Canadian Senior National Champion: Madeline Gardiner, silver medalist Jessica Savona and bronze medalist Bianca Dancose-Giambattisto!

Unfortunately, Dominique Pegg, the top qualifier into tonight’s All-Around final, finished in a tie for 7th place after falls on the Uneven Bars and Floor Exercise.
