Canada's Ellie Black, Brittany Rogers grab gymnastic gold at Universiade
Black also wins bronze to increase medal haul to 4
Canadian gymnast Ellie Black picked up two more medals Wednesday at the Summer Universiade while teammate Brittany Rogers won gold in the vault final.
Black, from Halifax, won gold in the beam with 14.133 points and took bronze in the apparatus final with a score of 13.966. Earlier in the competition, she won bronze in the all-around and added silver with Rogers and others in the team event.
Rogers, from Calgary, was the only gymnast to score over 14 points on both passes in the vault final. She finished with a combined score of 14.250.
"It's always such an honour representing Canada, and to do it beside Ellie today in the finals was such a great experience," said Rogers. "I'm so proud of the silver medal performance from the team event on Day 1, everything else was just a cherry on top. I'm so excited for the future of Canadian gymnastics and how every competition we just keep climbing and getting stronger. The sky is the limit."
Competition continues through Sunday at the multi-sport event.
