Team Canada Cheerleading

So the International Cheer Union's World Championships is done and I am exhausted! This was an amazing experience to be able to document the teams progression throughout their preparation for this competition. Both teams put in an extraordinary amount of blood, sweat and tears over the last week and I hope that comes through in the pictures I have taken. I have endeavoured to not just take the pretty pictures of the successes but to also document the hardships and failures that were overcome by these teams. In the end Team Canada placed 4th in the all-girl division and 7th in the co-ed division which was a respectable placing considering the fierce competition in these divisions from around the world. I would like to thank all of the athletes, coaches and support staff for letting me take all of the pictures I did.
