As a former gymnast myself you can only imagine how proud I am of my niece's Kimberly (15) and Sarah (13). Both have followed in their Auntie's footsteps and are gymnasts.
The first video is Kimberly who is a Level 10. (I will post Sarah's video later) My sister is starting to learn how to upload these videos,because soon college recruits will be looking at them. Her dance was a bit sloppy on Saturday... ususally she is much more crisp. My sis said Kimberly was nervous. She added a triple twist as her opening tumbling pass. As the competition season progresses that will be better. I will apologize for the quality of the video. This was Jennifer's first attempt at uploading to youtube. When watching from her acct. I can click watch in high quality... I will embed the clip and also give you the link. (copy and paste the link to watch the better quality version) The link possibly will let you click the option of watching in better quality. (bottom right corner of video)
Kimberly's opening tumbling pass is a triple full twist. (you can hear my BIL - her dad yelling when she hit's it) ha ha. She twists so clean and fast, the judges thought it was a double and she got a deduction. She will eventually work it into a 3.5 twist.
Her opening pass is a triple twist as I said, 2nd pass handspring, front full.5, backhandspring, back layout stepout. Last pass Roundoff whip back double twist. Can you tell I am proud. I get chocked up everytime I watch them... they are so talented! Kimberly and Sarah's coach is the daughter of my former coach! They have a God given talent and they work so hard! Kimberly is a straight A student, was on the National Junior Honor Society last year. (not sure when you can be inducted when you are in HS)
Hope you enjoy!!!!
Oh and I forgot to add when I first posted... Kimberly finished 3rd All Around in that meet. (it was Saturday night) As she said to me... I hit all 4 routines!
