After helping Canada qualify to the team final as well as the Rio Olympics, Brittany Rogers and the team competed a few days later in the hopes of improving upon its seventh-place qualifying position. And they did.
At the end of a hard-fought team final, the Canadians landed themselves in sixth, a program best. It was due partly from the help of Georgia’s Rogers who deferred the fall semester of her senior year to focus on elite, compete at the world championships and train for the upcoming Olympics.
In the finals, Rogers perfectly stuck her Yurchenko double twist for a score of 15.0 for the vault that only starts out of a 15.8. She had some minor mistakes on bars, hitting her feet on the low and high in separate occasions, but closed out the competition strong for her country on beam, tallying a high 13 to increase her mark form the qualification round.
