    My Story

    I have hypothyroidism, therefore it was very hard for me to do gymnastics and often I felt like giving up. After losing weight when I received medication, I became increasingly good at gymnastics and was admitted to level 4 at the age of 11 (a little late, I know) but it was a...

    Gymnastics Isn'T Just A Sport.Its A Passion.

    I first started gymnastics when I was 6 years old. I only did one season. I then did other sports like softball, track, and basketball. Summer of 2012, I started gymnastics again. I was 11 years old. I was out of shape for gymnastics so I did lots of conditioning at home. When I...

    My Sister, Not Me

    A Most Impressive Gymnast

    Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin. Great gymnasts. Wonderful routines. But, it is Oksana Chusovitina who impressed me the most. She's someone I have watched compete for almost a decade which is insane given that most gymnasts if they don't qualify for top 6 in an Olympic...

    I did gymnastics at an elite level when young and was obsessed. Even now, years later, I am still obsessed. I watch all the televised gymnastic events and wish the sport had more recognition. My favourite at the moment is the russian gymnast, Aliya Mustafina. I think she is...
