Hi, guys! This is Hope! I recently had my first gymnastics competition. I have been training for months and looking forward to my first meet!
When I got there, I was very nervous before they called my name. Of course, my first event was balance beam. My legs were all shaky! I ended up falling off twice.
My next event was floor and I did much better. My legs stopped shaking and I felt a lot better. My floor routine was pretty good and I got to do vault next. I love floor AND vault! I took 1st place in my age division on vault! I was SO EXCITED!!!
The last event was bars. I got really nervous again because I hurt myself a little while back on the bars. I told my teacher I didn’t need her to spot me and I went for it. I got 2nd place in my age division on bars! I even got my stride circle without any help! My family was all there to watch me and cheer for me.
When they were announcing names for the trophies I had no idea I had done so well. Here are all my events:
Vault: 1st place
Bars: 2nd place
Floor: 3rd place
Beam: 6th place
All-Around: 3rd place
When my next meet gets here I feel like I can do even better. Hopefully my legs won’t be so shaky! MAYBE I will even win another trophy. Fingers crossed! Thanks for reading! xoxo Hope
