Canada s Rhythmic team at the Commenwealth Games

Canadian Gymnastics organisers have wrapped up XVIII. Commonwealth Games 2006 selection trials in Ontario, Calgary and Montreal by nominating a skilled team for Melbourne, looking to continue the strong tradition of medal success for Canadian teams in both Artistic and Rhythmic competition.
Alexandra Orlando of Toronto will lead the Rhythmic Gymnastics team, looking to repeat the success of the 1998 Kuala Lumpur Games, when the event was last contested, in which Canadian Erika Leigh Stirton took home five golds and helped her colleagues to a silver medal in the Team Event.
