Micaylla Broadway

Micaylla Broadway is a natural at gymnastics, but also works extremely hard to be among the elite.

Broadway, 14, of the Duncan Dynamics Gymnastics Club, obtained brilliant results in the B.C. Winter Games at Vernon.

She won gold on the vault and beam for Level 4, silver on the bars and gold all-around.

“As the competition was going on and as my marks were showing up, I thought I was doing really good,’’ said Broadway.

“I was probably expecting something, but not first all-around.’’

She started gymnastics at age six and currently goes to sessions five times a week lasting four hours each — sometimes five.

“She’s like a really hard worker and listener,’’ said coach Olga Matagonova, who also cited the club’s great facilities for Broadway’s success.
