There’s another highlight on the road to Rio for Manitoban Olympic gymnastics hopeful Isabela Onyshko.
Onyshko was among the big winners at Sport Manitoba’s annual Night of Champions awards gala on Saturday night, collecting honours for junior female athlete of the year! In fact, it was the second year in a row that Onyshko and the Calvert rink took home those awards.
For Onyshko, the win follows a breakout 2015 that saw her claim her first World Cup golds at an event in Slovenia, clinch a team silver at the 2015 Pan Am Games and make her world championship debut with Canada.
This time around, Onyshko’s coach Lorie Henderson was also honoured as female coach of the year for amateur athletes.
