Victoria Moors Expected to Return to Competition at Elite Canada


2012 Olympian Victoria Moors of Canada will make her return to competition this weekend at Elite Canada in Trois-Rivières, Québec.

Moors, who withdrew from Canada’s team at last year’s Commonwealth Games and hasn’t competed since winning the bronze all-around medal at the 2014 Canadian Championships in May, is one of 35 senior women listed on the meet’s athlete registration released by Gymnastics Canada this week.

The list also includes 2014 World team members Ellie Black, Maegan Chant, Isabela Onyshko, Kirsten Peterman, and Victoria-Kayen Woo, as well as national team members Casey Carvalho, Madison Copiak, Gabriella Douglas, and Sabrina Gill. Aleeza Yu, who injured her knee on beam during qualifications in Nanning, is not expected to compete, nor will 2014 Worlds alternate and Pan Ams team member Jordyn Pedersen.

Former junior national team members Sydney Laird, Audrey Rousseau, Sydney Soloski, and Sydney Townsend will make their senior debuts at the meet. In addition, junior standouts Shallon Olsen and Rose-Kaying Woo will join the senior ranks for the week due to their strong Rio 2016 potential.

Elite Canada will also feature MAG competitors. Every member of the 2014 Worlds team is expected to compete, including Zachary Clay, Ken Ikeda, Kevin Lytwyn, Scott Morgan, Jackson Payne, Hugh Smith, and Robert Watson.

All registered competitors are listed below. For more information about Elite Canada, including the full schedule of events, please visit our event page.

  1. Do you think this gives weight to the suspicion that she had been suspended from the team (so not quitting gymnastics after all) for [unknown] behavior in Scotland?


    • Possibly…I don’t like speculating about why she was out but I think if people are speculating that she had a suspension for a given amount of time, this would make sense. I don’t think she was suspended but this could definitely give weight to that suspicion for those who do.


  2. ” In addition, junior standouts Shallon Olsen and Victoria-Kayen Woo will join the senior ranks for the week” Do you mean Rose-Kaying Woo? Victoria-Kayen was born in 1997.
