Moors Selected to Canadian Olympic Team
UCLA freshman Brooklyn Moors has been selected to Canada's four-person Olympic team for the upcoming 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Moors, who has been a member of the Canadian National Team since 2017, has competed at the last three World Championships (2017-19), advancing to the all-around and floor exercise finals each year. In 2017, she became the first Canadian gymnast ever to win the Longines Prize for Elegance after placing fifth on floor exercise and 15th in the all-around. The following year, she led Canada to its best-ever finish at the World Championships (fourth) and placed eighth herself on floor exercise. In 2019, she won the gold medal on floor exercise at the Pan American Games and Canadian Championship and placed seventh on floor and 14th in the all-around at the World Championships. She won her second-straight national floor exercise championship in 2021 and finished eighth in the all-around.
Moors enrolled at UCLA in Fall 2020 and redshirted the 2021 season while training at her home gym in Cambridge, Ontario. She will join UCLA alumna Danusia Francis in Tokyo. Francis qualified as an individual competitor for Jamaica in 2019. Moors will be the second UCLA female gymnast to compete at the Olympics as a college student, joining Kate Richardson, who competed at the 2004 Olympics for Canada following her sophomore year at UCLA.
Joining Moors on Team Canada are Ellie Black, Shallon Olson and Ava Stewart.
