« It’s always such an honour representing Canada, and to do it beside Ellie today in the finals was such a great experience, » said Rogers. « I’m so proud of the silver medal performance from the team event on Day 1, everything else was just a cherry on top. I’m so excited for the future of Canadian gymnastics and how every competition we just keep climbing and getting stronger. The sky is the limit. »
