Hi, I am a former gymnast and that is only because I had an injury that still bothers me 2 years later. I did gymnastics for a couple months when I was 3 and then went on to play almost every other sport you can imagine. When I was 10 I did cheerleading for a year and decided that I really only liked the tumbling part of it. So I went back to gymnastics and competed until I was 19, I competed for Metro Flyers in Iowa and then moved to the Cincinnati area and competed for my high school's gymnastics team. I was throwing level 9/10 skills when I hurt my knee and had surgery. Now I go to Iowa State and am the coordinator for the city-run recreational gymnastics program here.
