What program are you in at Splitz? Who is your Coach?

I am in the Level 9 CanGym Program at Splitz. My Coach is Rachel W and she is awesome!

How long have you been doing Gymnastics for?

I have been at Splitz doing gymnastics since I was in Kindergarten.

Have you ever taken a break from Gymnastics and why?

I broke my left arm at school falling off the monkey bars when I was in grade 5. I had to stay away from gymnastics for 6 months! I was so bored and wanted to go back to gymnastics as soon as possible!

Why do you love Gymnastics?

I love gymnastics because it keeps me busy and I can work on new skills each time I train. Doing gymnastics makes me stronger and it helps with my skills in dance.

What is your favourite event? What is your favourite skill?

My favourite event is Floor! I love Floor because I like how you can connect skills and it helps to train other skills for other events such as Beam. I also enjoy working on skills for Floor. Front handspring is my favourite skill!

What is the next skill you would like to accomplish?

I would love to get my backhand spring. I have been working on getting my backhand spring since my injury. My injury has set me back a bit from achieving this skill but I am working hard at it. I am especially working on getting a bit stronger before I can accomplish this skill.
