CALGARY – Eleven-year-old Brenley Martin is really enjoying a chance to showcase the sport she loves these days.
The latest opportunity came Friday Dec. 4 at St. Philip School in Calgary.
Martin took centre stage at an assembly, to dazzle her schoolmates with her acrobatic gymnastics demonstration, performing with her partner, 15-year-old Anastasia Sisov.
It’s the same routine they performed a few weeks ago at the first-ever Pan-American Acrobatic Gymnastics Championships in Puerto Rico, where they won a silver medal.

Martin is loving every minute of the routines, saying “I go really high and it’s just real fun.”
Sisov says Martin’s commitment to gymnastics plays a big role in their success.
“She’s a good partner,” said Sisov. “She’s a hard worker.”
Martin’s mom Charissa says that love of the sport started showing up early in her daughter’s life.
“Soon as she could walk, she was climbing and jumping on everything. So we put her in gymnastics as soon as we could”.
