Omega Gymnastics' Shallon Olsen was in one moment helping Canada to a silver medal, and in the next carting off Sport BC's Junior Female Athlete of the Year honours.
The 12-year-old gymnast competed for Canada at the Gymnix Junior Cup in Montreal on the weekend, posting gold on vault and placing 10th all-around, boosting Canada to a silver in team competition. She was the lone Canadian to score gold in the event finals.
In a competition of 27 gymnasts, Olsen was joined by teammates Brianna Clark, Heaven Latimer and Aleza Yu.
"This was the first time this group competed as a team and they did some good work," said national women's team director Kyna Fletcher. "The scores on vault and floor showed this new generation is strong on vault and floor but we know there's work to do on uneven bars and beam."
While she was in Quebec, Sport BC was celebrating her achievements in 2012 at home.
Olsen had great results in 2012, winning the Canadian junior and Elite Canada junior titles. She scored international medals and was a national leader in vault.
