Lefevre reaches podium at worlds

Kelowna gymnast Adele Lefevre win bronze in double mini event at World Age Group Trampoline championships

For the second time in a week, a Kelowna gymnast has proven to be among the world’s best.

Adele Lefevre, 17, won a bronze medal Friday at the World Age Group Trampoline Championships in Odense, Denmark.

Lefevre, who trains at the Okanagan Gymnastics Centre in Kelowna, took third place in the double mini trampoline event in the women’s 17-18 age group.

A week earlier, Kelowna’s Dani Gruber claimed gold in the senior women’s division at the world championships in Denmark.

Lefevre headed into the finals ranked first, then put down two solid routines to win bronze behind Mafalda Brás of Portugal and Pauline Feyaerts of Belgium.

“I didn’t even know if I was going to make finals, and going into finals in first was crazy. I really feel like I could have done better, but I’m a perfectionist,” Lefevre said. “I’m really excited to stand on the podium with the best two girls in the world and that’s an honour.” Lefevre was competing in her second world age groups championships.

Another Kelowna athlete, Jordyn Yendley, competed in the girls 13-14 double mini event and placed 40th overall.
