Good luck. My daughter has her 1st level 9 meet tomorrow, but she is 15, not 25! I'm not sure how it will go, she lost her bars dismount, so is just going to do a flyaway instead of the "C" dismount, so she won't have a fall, so an automatic deduction for that! she has been over rotating her vault and doubleback on floor all week, so they might be falls too.
I hope that she is still able to do it when she gets in her 20's. no lasting aches and pains. How do you find out about adult meets?
The meet was a disaster! My highest score was an 8.15 on beam. Lol. I was off on everything. But oh well! I had fun and I have another one next month, so hopefully I'll be able to train and that will go better.
Tams Mom: I don't do adult meets... I actually compete against girls who are half my age. One of the girls asked how old I was tonight... and I look like I'm fifteen but her jaw dropped when I said 25. It was quite funny.
GymmomOR1127: I started gymnastics when I was 13, competed until I graduated as a level seven. Then I did some college club meets (no pressure or anything at those meets), working out when I had the chance, but nothing too major. Then when I was 22 I started doing USAG meets again as a level eight. I was thrilled because I always wanted to be a level 8. I actually ended up winning states that year and qualified to the Regional team and placed on beam there! It kind of felt like a fairy tale.
Now, three years later, I'm trying to be (unsuccessfully tonight-lol) a level nine. We'll see how that goes.
