More notably, Allison Leroux won the Largest Dough competition that is part of the acrobatics competition. Her score was 95.65 competing in a field of 23 entrants. And she did it all between writing university exams!


Congratulations, Allison, Joe, Anthony, Andy and all the Canadians who represented Canada so well!
