Since joining ORGCin 2014, The twins started from the basic level Recreational Program (Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced), Pre-Competitive Program and then the Inter-Club Competitive & Performance Program. Now they are in the Inter-Club level 5.

Before the competition, besides the regular training on Sunday and Monday prior to the day of competition, the Sing provided two more 1.5-hour sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The twins didn’t like make-up, but this time they asked for eyeliner and mascara because Sing asked. The ones I had had dried up so we went to Walmart Walmart Toronto Agincourt Store right after we reached Toronto Friday afternoon.
Our best friends in Toronto provided the accommodation. Saturday Morning was in a rash as we needed to reach the competition venue at York University at 9 am. As usual, I helped the twins with bans, applied the eye liner. They helped themselves applying mascara and declined my offer for fine tuning. They looked good though.
Both Cherry and Rose competed for IC level 5 Ribbon individual routines. There are 10 competitors.

Rose was the fifth to be on the stage. When her routine was over the TV screen showed she was placed at the first so far with 7.05 points.
Then came Cherry and after she was finished. The scroe screen showed that she was the first with 8.8 point. I continued monitoring the score board. There was Isajanyan Alina who was placed in the second with a mark of 7.55point, It was highter than Rose so I thought Rose was third. Cherry’s mark was far apart and I think her first place is secured.
But later when they were handed out the award, it turned out I made a mistake, Rose and Isajanyan tied for second.
Their peers Huang Jacqueline and Liu Crystal registered for two individual routines respectively, along with a group routine with cherry and Rose for two rings and two balls Group routine.
After they finished their individual competition, both Cherry and Rose came to my seat. Cherry showed me her bandaded toe and told me she was tripped and stubbed her toe. Rose showed a bitter face telling me her stomach ached. I am somewhat worried and hoped she would be fine for the group routine.

Finally the time came for the group competition. There were only team competed. Everything seemed to be fine until Cherry lost her hoop. I saw her being hesitated in chasing the running hoop and later on she realized that there was not a subtitued one around so she had to run out of the team to get it. Lucky enough she had time to join the team to finish the routine. Althought they got a 0.60 point deduction due to dropping hoop outside the line, they still received the first for group routine competition, first of the three teams.
The cost for Koop cup is one routines $40. The twin both register for two routing, one individual Ribbon routine and one one group routine, plus coach travel expense which was $45. This cost them $250 together.
After the competition, I encouraged them to join the Provincial Level but they said no without any hesitance. Sing said they were doing very well and next year they will be arranged to go to Toronto to compete again.
Good luck girls.
