Daughter had a meet today, last meet she did really well all time best 35.6 placed 4th aa(2nd year level 4). So I was really nervous and telling her it's alright if you do not beat your score this week. She tells me I am going to try for 9's, I am like it's okay why don't you try to improve your floor score last meet was 8.75. Bars is 1st she gets a 8.5 last meet was 8.8, I am thinking the meet can not possibly go as well as the last meet at this point. Then she manges to get a 9.3 on beam 9.5 on floor and then I am shocked when she gets a 9.8 in vault. She placed 2nd AA with a score of 37.1!! I am so proud of how much she has worked to improve her scores after nearly quitting gymnastics last year! It really goes to show that motivation and lots of practice is a big factor in this sport!
