Canada's Ellie Black places fifth in women's individual all-around; Onyshko 18th

RIO DE JANEIRO — Canada's Ellie Black finished fifth in the women's individual all-around gymnastics final at the Rio Olympics on Thursday.

Black, 20, of Halifax completed the competition with an overall score of 58.298.

Canadian all-around champion Isabela Onyshko, 18, of Brandon, Man., finished in 18th place with a score of 56.365.

Black had a best-ever result for Canada at the 2015 world championships when she finished seventh in the all-around.
