Canada wins 2 bronze medals in Gymnastics

Canada’s women gymnasts matched the men’s bronze-medal performance as they opened their Commonwealth Games competition Tuesday.

Australia, as expected, won a fourth consecutive Commonwealth Games women's team gold with England in second and Canada third.

Australia, with a total of 163.700 points, easily continued the path to gold that began in Kuala Lumpur in 1998.

England scored 158.200, with Canada a close third at 154.750 points.

Australia fielded its A-team, as it prepared for the world championship in Rotterdam, the Netherlands in October 16.

England and Canada however chose not to send their leading stars to Delhi, an Agence France Presse report said.

The last three Games have seen the same podium result for the women's team event.

The top 24 men and top 24 women from the team events on Monday and Tuesday advance to the all-round finals, while the top eight men and top eight women advance to the individual apparatus finals at the 14,400-seat Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium.
