CBC: Canada takes on the world at artistic gymnastics championships

Canada's Ellie Black will be looking to build on her multi-medal performance from the Pan Am Games and secure a spot at the 2016 Olympics as the world artistic gymnastics championships get underway Saturday in Glasgow.

The event is Canada's first chance to qualify for the 2016 Olympics.

The top eight teams in both the men's and women's competition will directly qualify for Rio. On an individual basis, medal winners in Glasgow who are not already part of a qualified team for the Olympics will qualify directly for Rio.
