Langley gymnast Bailey Peterson called herself lucky after she was declared all-around champion in her age class at the 2019 Artistic Gymnastics BC Championships (WAG) held Friday to Sunday (April 12-14) in Coquitlam.
Peterson took gold in the floor, silver in the uneven bars, and bronze on the balance beam.
“It’s just kind of a lucky competition,” the 11-year-old told the Langley Advance Times.
Peterson, a member of the Langley Gymnastics Foundation club, said she eventually hopes to qualify for the Olympics.
