Young Revelstoke athletes have bounced their way into the spotlight and into some silverware following a very successful year in trampoline.

Revelstoke Acrobats Trampoline Gymnastics won a number of medals at two reputable competitions over the summer of 2022.

“We had a very successful trampoline year,” said head coach Jill Drake. “I’m just so proud of them this year.”

A number of athletes from Revelstoke competed at the Western Canada Cup in June and won medals in every category they entered.

Then, at the 2022 Trampoline Gymnastics Canadian Championships hosted in Calgary from July 21 to 24, Revelstoke’s Ruby Ryga took home two gold medals.

Ryga has also made a significant achievement according to Drake, becoming the first person in Revelstoke’s history to qualify for the World Age Competition, taking place in Bulgaria later this year. She will represent Team Canada at the prestigious event in November.
