Kevin Lytwyn came close to making his Olympic debut at London 2012 but was instead the alternate for Canada’s lone men’s artistic gymnastics berth. Now a five-time world championship team member, Lytwyn won three medals at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, including silver on rings and bronze on horizontal bar as well as helping Canada win bronze in the team event.
