Ellie BlackIn just a few months in 2012, Ellie Black went from  a long shot just to make the Olympic team to one of the top performers on a squad that achieved a best-ever finish. In April 2012 Black had an international breakthrough, winning two gold medals (vault, floor exercise) at a World Cup meet in Croatia. At London 2012 she helped the team to a fifth-place finish as Canada’s leading scorer on vault and beam. She was also one of the eight qualifiers for the Olympic vault final, but a left ankle injury sustained on her first vault left her unable to complete her second.
