Victoria Woo finishes fifth at 2019 Birmingham Gymnastics World Cup

Woo, who trains out of Gym-Richelieu with coaches Michel Charron and Marie-Josée Laperrière, started off the competition with a strong performance on vault to score 13.666 which had her in bronze medal position at the end of the rotation. A 12.033 on the uneven bars dropped her down to fifth position but she rebounded to second overall with a fantastic beam routine that scored 12.600. In the last rotation on floor, Woo scored a 12.800 to finish 6th on that apparatus but fifth all-around with a total score of 51.099. Woo’s childhood idol – Mustafina, took gold with a total score of 53.564. McCusker scored 53.065, while Fidelis scored 51.832. Carolann Heduit of France finished fourth with a score of 51.632.

“I felt great. I had a little mistake on bars, but that’s OK because I still finished the routine, and all my other events were really good so I’m really happy,” said Woo following the competition. “The highlight of the competition was competing alongside my idol! I’ve idolized her since I was a little girl so it was just amazing to be out there competing alongside her.”

When asked what she’ll be looking to work on for her next competition, Woo responded: “I’m looking forward to upgrading my routine on floor and potentially on bars, and being more consistent on bars.”

Next up for Woo, and several other members of the women’s national team, will be a training camp in Tokyo, Japan in April, where they will all get to watch Ellie Black compete in the Tokyo World Cup on April 7th. That will be followed up by the Canadian Championships in Ottawa from May 23-26.
