We Made It
…to Nationals and it was great!
Huge shout-out to the brave club gymnasts who went to nationals in Philadelphia and delivered a great performance (in terms of gymnastics as well as in terms of having tons of fun as a group of friends)! It was awesome to see how much everyone has learned in only a year and how much the team has grown together during this year. It was especially impressive that both teams could get a full team together and place well in their sessions. The teams who placed behind us DIDN’T EVEN TRY.
Given that it was our first year at Nationals, these are really impressive team results. Thanks especially to the brave gymnasts who came to YCG with no experience and had the courage to go to nationals and try their best at all events. For example, Andreas had never touched a pommel horse before nationals, but he decided to be hero and still earn some points for YCG!
…or all the YCG girls who have been working on those routines so hard in the weeks before nationals and made an incredible team! (Sorry that we have no individual photos. Team photographer Philipp Arndt had to compete at the same time…)
…or Alden, whose SECOND COMPETITION EVER WAS ALSO HIS SECOND ALL-AROUND. This is dedication!
