Hi, I am Angela. Today, I want to talk about an amazing sport. It is gymnastics. My school is called Youngsters Inc. Gymnastics. When I first started, I was really nervous but when I tried it, it was really easy. My first coach was Robin. He was an awesome, funny guy.
When I first started, I was an intro student. I recently moved to another level called intermediate, which is called white stars.
In white stars we do handstands, bridges, casts, pull ups on the bar, flips, air best on the highest beam, forward roll on the lowest beam, middle splits, flips, straddle jumps, and backwards rolls.
I can almost do a pull up on the bar and I can almost do a handstand too. My white star coach is Ms. Tiffany. She is a teenager and she is good. She is 17 years old. Sometimes I need help doing handstands. She taught me how to do it by tucking my belly. So I did it and I could almost reach to the top! We have a little trampoline and that’s where we do straddle jumps. I also can do splits but it really hurts my legs.
When I finished my intro classes, I got two awards. My favorite gymnastics athlete is Gabby Douglas. She has won gold medals in the olympics. When I grow up I want to be in the olympics too. I want to be with a team in a competition and I hope to win a gold medal.
