💫Star of the Gym!💫
Name: Adeline Age: 13 Team: GIJO Gold
How long have you been doing gymnastics? Oh gosh... uhm.. I think I have been doing gymnastics since I was about four years old.
What is your favorite event and why? My favorite event is floor because I get to include components of gymnastics and dance and be really creative with the choreography.
What was your proudest moment this year? Probably not falling off the beam at all after having a few meets where I fell off four times because that was really tough for me but I worked through it and got better.
What was the toughest moment this year? Well I did have a fear of full turns on beam for a little bit, that was tough. Yeah, I fell off at every meet and got really scared but I constantly did a ton of them and it got better.
Who is your strongest supporter? Not one person, my whole family, my mom, dad, and sister. They are always encouraging me to follow my heart and do what I want to, you know make my own choices, so they are really supportive of everything I do.
What is your next gymnastics goal? My next gymnastics goal is to get a kip on bars because I have been working at that for, oh gosh, probably like three years and I still haven't gotten it!
What do you do when you are not at IK? I love to cook. I do a lot of cooking at home for my family. I also do a lot of school sports. I do field hockey during the fall, softball in the spring, and I also do tennis during the summer.
Keep up the great work! We hope to see your kip soon!!
