Duncan's Mia Butcher finished the competitive gymnastics season in fine style.

Butcher obtained strong results at the Garden City Invitational at Panorama. She competed as a P2 Tyro, winning four medals.

That included an all-around bronze medal; bronze on beam; two silver medals on bars and vault; and eighth on floor.

Butcher trains at Falcon Gymnastics in Victoria.

Meanwhile, she was pre-selected last fall to attend the National Circus School summer camp, and will be traveling to Montreal in July to train in Circus Arts at the school.
