As well as winning the team title, their top gymnast Elsabeth Black, competing in her second Commonwealth Games, took the All-around gold, while Shallon Olsen won gold on Vault in the apparatus finals.It represents a resurgence in Canadian Women's Gymnastics.
Four years ago they finished fourth as a team, and added just one gold in finals, for Elsabeth Black on Beam. She also won a silver on Vault and bronze on Balance Beam in 2014, so Canada doubled its medal haul at GC201
England could not match their results from four years ago, when they won eight medals, five of them gold. Nevertheless, their relatively young team finished with five medals on the Gold Coast, two of them gold, for Georgia-Mae Fenton on Uneven Bars, and Alice Kinsella on Beam.
Australia enjoyed home crowd support to win six medals in total, one of them gold at the very end of the competition. Alexandra Eade won the Floor Exercise title to cap off a successful outing for them. The only other country to win a medal was Wales, with Latalia Bevan taking silver on Floor for an exquisite performance based on ballet from Swan Lake.
