National skipping champion Shelby Toews of Leamington won a gold medal at the Junior Olympics in Detroit on the weekend.
Toews also broke a Canadian record with 187 consecutive skips (the previous record was 171 skips) at the world championships in Cape Town, South Africa. Toews, who ended up 20th at the championships, maintained a top-10 spot before missing the bronze.
The junior olympic medallist and several of her Leamington Acro-Ropers students will demonstrate their rope-jumping talents at 10:30 a.m. and again at 12:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Steam Engine show at Co-An Park in McGregor.
