USA Gymnastics Championships – Day 5

Saturday was another action packed, adrenaline filled day!  Fairland adds 2 more Gold medals and 2 more podium finishes to its count!  Kaleb started the day right by winning gold on level 8, 10 and under tumbling. Megan followed with a 6th place finish in lvl 8, 14 yr old DMT and Alysha continued by adding an 8th place finish on level 8, 13 yr old DMT. 

Action then switched to the arena, where Jessica nailed her Junior Elite Trampoline finals routine to cinch the gold medal as well as a berth on the 2015-2016 Jr National Trampoline Team.

Delilah and Deana continued the streak with two awesome routines in Senior Elite Trampoline finals!  It was definitely an intense competition.  Athletes were not ‘taking it easy’, everyone was going for broke!  

The most surprising finish of the day was Fairland’s newest competitor, Franz (Neomie’s dad)! Absolutely fabulous execution of your tuck jump. The judges each awarded you with a perfect 10.0, and your airtime was practically immeasurable-we think both feet actually left the trampoline!  Unfortunately, you were not in proper Fairland attire, please see Konstantin once we get back home!

The 2015 USA Gymnastics Championships wraps up tomorrow.  Addison, Lily, Kaleb, and Neomie will compete DMT, Megan – TR, and Alysha – TU.  GOOD LUCK and Go Fairland!!!!

USA Gymnastics Championships — Day 2

As expected, today was another hot one!  Let’s talk snow days!  Did you know . . . .even with 0 snow days, Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George Counties will still be in school during the 2016 USA Gymnastics Championships?  USA Gymnastics announced the 2016 USA Gymnastics Championships will be in Providence, Rhode Island from June 8 -13 (yes, we can drive).  Why so early?  If the US qualifies for the 2016 Olympics, the Olympic athletes will be determined at the event!  But wait we can’t talk school snow days—Howard County hasn’t even been out a week!  I should have went with the vocal cord cooling thoughts of Sonic milkshakes or Wendy’s Frosty’s (both very close to the venue) or Steak ‘n Shake and Dairy Queen (very close to a lot of our hotels)!  It seemed like Fairland had one of the more ‘vocal’ cheering sections . . or maybe it seemed that way to me because I sat in front of the group!

Wednesday started preliminary competition for some of our level 9, 10 and open elite athletes.  In order to qualify for finals competition, athletes must place in the top 8 in preliminary competition.   Scores are cumulative-carrying over from prelims to finals.  In finals, athletes compete in reverse order of their finish in the preliminary round: 8th place will compete 1st and the first place finisher in preliminaries will compete last.  Finals for level 9 and open elites are Friday morning, level 10 finals are Friday afternoon.  Full results are being posted on the competition website:   www.USAGymChamps.com   Great job to all the athletes who competed today!  Preliminary competition continues tomorrow for levels 9, 10, open elites and junior elites.  Good luck to all our athletes.  Go Fairland!
