HALIFAX -- The youngest female gymnast at the Canada Winter Games in Halifax is also one of the best.

Ten-year-old Shallon Olsen of Surrey, B.C., won a gold medal in floor and a bronze in beam Thursday to go along with a silver she won earlier this week in the team competition.

She placed fifth in the all-around competition.

Olsen is also one of the tiniest competitors at the Games, standing just four-foot-three and weighing 54 pounds.
