Josh Winger of the Revelstoke Acrobat Club flips through the air at the Canadian National Trampoline & Tumbling Championships in Calgary. It was Winger’s first time competing at the national level and he wound up in 24th place out of 29 athletes in his age-group, many of whom were more experienced at that level of comeptition.

“His first routine did not go as planned and he ended up not being able to finish his full routine, but then he bounced back and had a good showing in his second optional routine,” said coach Jef Kline.

Expect to see Winger and the other Revelstoke Acrobats back in the gym shortly to train for the next competition season.
