Nansy Damianova, one of two gymnasts who represented Canada at the 2008 Olympics, will continue through 2009 and possibly through 2012.

Damianova told IG in a recent interview that her Olympic experience made her realize she wanted to continue in international competition, definitely for the 2009 Worlds, and possibly through the 2012 Olympics. It’s especially nice since Elyse Hopfner-Hibbs, Canada’s other Olympic qualifier, is now at UCLA.

Damianova, who trains at Gymnix, says she is aiming for good finishes at Canadian Championships, Worlds and the new Gymnix World Cup.

About her new teammates, including Brittany Rogers, recent champion at Elite Canada, Damianova says:

“I think it will be very exciting to help leading Canada’s new generation of seniors in the new year because I know the girls pretty well. I have competed with a few of them on the same team when I was in my last year as a junior, and we get along very well. It will definitely be a new and different experience, being the oldest and helping the team. Before, I was usually one of the youngest and less experienced on the team. We also have some pretty strong and interesting girls coming up, so we should have an interesting team in the coming years. It will be fun to see the team evolve.”

i dont really like her gymnastics,nor do i agree with the fact she went to the olympics.
[Simply because I know Gael Mackie could have and would have beat her out for it] but Im glad she can lead Brittany Rodgers ,Charlotte Mackie and Peng Peng,the the best juniors in the country, to the worlds and etc.
