Shallon Olsen Qualifies for Apparatus Final
BC athlete Shallon Olsen qualified for the Olympic Vault final with a score of 14.699 in 6th place. This will be Shallon's second time qualifying for an Olympic vault final, the first being at the Rio 2016 Olympics where she placed 8th. Shallon was quoted by GymCan on her performance saying:
"Today was a little bit stressful for me, I haven't competed for over a year with this team, and just being back out there on the big stage is just something I wanted to take in and enjoy," said Olsen who has been competing in the NCAA this past season with the University of Alabama. "It was obviously a little bit different not having the crowd there, but I think the cheerfulness and excitement kept me going this whole time and I know my teammates had my back throughout the whole meet and I'm really, really grateful for that.”
Gymnastics BC would like to congratulate Shallon on her outstanding results and wish her the best of luck in the Vault final!
Watch Shallon Olsen compete in Vault Finals Sunday, August 1st, at 1:45 am PST on CBC.
