Hi Hollie, welcome here. I am sure you will like it here.

May I ask where in UK you are? My husband is from Scotland and my oldest, daughter, the gymnast, was born in Wales. We used to live in England. But now live in Holland, where I am from.

i'm just a recreational gymnast really, I've only done floor and vault competitions.

vault- handspring over 120cm
bars- my worst piece so i cant really do more than a pull over, squat on and straddle shoot dismount.
beam- forward roll/cartwheel, basic leaps and jumps, spins etc. and i can do tuck front dismount.
floor- i learnt r/o bhs yesteday, also i can do fhs, nearly walkovers etc.

Right now, here's what I'm working/have.

Floor: front handspring-front tuck, switch leap-tuck full, layout, r/o-bh-bh step out, pike jump-back extension.
Vault: handspring, 1/2 on.

Hi i'm 8, and i am a level 4 gymnast in the United States. My name is Mckenna. I also just made my roundoff backhandspring without a spotter.:D:D It was the last skill I needed toget be able to compete this year. I have been in gymnastics for two years. I love it!:D:) My favorite event is floor, but I am best on the beam.
