Canada first at Swiss Open
July 2, 2009 OTTAWA – Canada sits first at the Swiss Open following the Team Tech event. Canada's National 'A' Team put in a flawless performance and was rewarded for its efforts.

"Through the course of the week this team has made incredible strides from one training session to another," said Canadian head coach Denise Sauve. "The girls were focused and put forth a great effort. The synchronization, energy, perfect patterns - they were all there at the right moment, that's to say it was there during the performance for the judges."
