At the age of 6 1/2 years old, Asia fell in love with gymnastics. One morning, she woke up and said she wants to practice gymnastics. She would always find time to watch YouTube videos day and night in her bedroom, teaching herself how to do backflips, front flips and press handstands. After months of convincing her parents that she was eager and "more than ready" to learn the sport competively. Asia was taken to a gym facility where she showcased her skill for the coaches; they were more than impressed and immediately requested that she enroll into their program and that's when the real training began. She went from practicing the basics of sport in her bedroom to becoming a member of the TOPs program at the age of 7 in 2015. Asia trained for 8 months and in that time, she had grown stronger, smarter and more aware of what it takes to become a balanced athlete in the sport. The hard work paid off as it landed Asia in the Top 50 rank in the state of Florida and she could not have been more proud herself. That accomplishment came with her first major award of being selected to be a part of the Diamond team which only made her strive for more. In 2016, Asia tested out of levels 4 & 5 and continued to train for her next TOPs testing. The results of that testing opened the eyes of USAG members and earned her several trips to the national training center in Texas at the age of 8. While at the camp, for the first time, Asia placed 5th and then soon after she placed 2nd in the physical abilities competition. Getting more familiar with her gift, Asia was determined to do better so she trained harder. While thrilling and exciting for Asia, it all happened very fast and she encountered challenging moments in going away to camps and spending long periods away from her parents at such a young age. Although this was a whirlwind experience, Asia found the courage to do what it takes for something she enjoyed so much. In 2017, Asia was exhilarated to compete as a level 7 in her very first season! Asia finished the season earning state floor & vault titles! In 2018, Asia competed level 8 winning state 3rd AA with a floor title which earned her a spot at regionals. Asia ended her level 8 season at regionals placing 1st AA and making vault champ! Sparing no effort, next to come for Asia will be competing level 9 pushing higher and competing more fiercely each year in hopes of becoming a successful elite.
Olivia started gymnastics at the age of 3 at The Little Gym in Scarsdale, NY. By 5 years old, Olivia was doing standing tucks and displaying tremendous talent in the sport. Someone at her recreational class recommended that she try competitive gymnastics. At this age she was great at tumbling but had no idea where gymnastics would take her. Fast forward to 2017 -- Olivia was pretty set on quitting gymnastics. She had just finished her first level 9 season. She felt down and defeated about not living up to her own expectations. Olivia's parents wanted to try one last thing before they let her leave gymnastics forever -- they changed gyms. The decision to take her over an hour away from home to North Stars Gymnastics Academy in NJ, would be a big sacrifice but worth the try. The first 30 days at Olivia's new gym were rough. There was so much for Olivia to learn and revamp before the season began. She was not used to this type of practice or work ethic. Every day she was nervous to point of headache and it seemed to be the end of gymnastics for such a gifted girl. It was heartbreaking. Something happened after that 30-day trial. Olivia was excited again. She couldn't wait to get to practice. She was talking about her future in gymnastics again. North Stars had turned Olivia into her alter ego, "STORM," once again! (A powerful nickname for such a humble girl). The 2017-18 gymnastics session began and Olivia was off to a great start. She still struggled on certain events but overall looked like a rock star. Olivia's coaches were slowly building her confidence back up. Mid season, Olivia was on a roll but then two weeks before the NJ State competition, BAM, she landed short in her double back tuck, spraining her ankle. She missed the two gymnastics meets leading to States and wasn't sure if she could perform all events at the meet. Olivia went to States and fell on floor, and beam. It was a shaky meet! She managed to qualify for the Regionals competion next. At Regionals, Olivia was ready and got her record high scores on vault, floor and AA. She now was feeling ready for Eastern Nationals. Walking into Nationals, Olivia turned to her mom and said "I'm not nervous. I'm going to win." She went out there and did just that! Olivia won floor and the AA at Eastern Nationals. Olivia feels good about her future in gymnastics, and has set some big goals. Still driving over an hour each way to the gym she now calls home, Olivia is grateful for the support on the path ahead. Winning Gymnast of the Year would be an honor for a regular, degular, schmegular girl from the Bronx just trying her best to reach her goals.
I've been doing gymnastics for the past ten years of my life! I am 16, a Sophmore in High School and live in Boerne, Texas. I train at Crossfire Gymnastics. My small gym means the world to me. I hope to be the first collegiate gymnast at my hometown gym. This past year I have had a very successful season as a level 9. I qualified to compete at Westerns. I also received first on beam and All-Around at State and Regionals. I plan on to compete level 10 this upcoming season and I am so excited. Gymnastics has been a rock for me. It has taught me to work hard and I am so grateful for the opportunities it has given me.
I have been competing in gymnastics since I was five and I have been going to Gold Medal for over 10 years. My favorite event is beam. I am very excited to be nominated for the Top 100 Gymnasts of the Year.
Hi! I am Alexis Jeffrey and I am an elite level gymnast from GAGE. Last season, at level 10, I was the national champion in the All-around and on bars. I also qualified for elite and competed at the American Classic and US Classic. At the US Classic my qualifying score gave me a berth to the 2018 US Championships in Boston. There I Placed 9th in the all-around and 8th on the floor.
12 years old gymnast at World Class Gymnastics in Newport News Va. competing at Level 9 for this . I started gymnastics when I was 2 years old with a Mommy & Me class and never looked back, even though I always seemed to be the smallest gymnast in the class or on the team, it has become my passion and joy. I trained for 8 years at Riverview Gymnastic Center with the Flipateers Team in Newport News, Va. going from Super Kids to Level 4 -5 Compulsory team and then onto Optional's Level 6. My first optional year as a Level 6 was an all time highest record for the Flipateers as I made the Top 100 gymnast scoring an AA 38.500 at the 2016 Virginia State Meet. I competed Level 7 at Triple T Gymnastic in Suffolk Va. with the same coaches from Flipateers Jami and Loni whom I have had since the day I started my first competition at 6 years old Level 4. I scored out of Level 3 at 5 years old. I am currently training at World Class Gymnastics in Newport News, VA. I competed Level 8 with a new team , new coaches and a much larger gym. It was a fabulous year placing 3rd at the 2018 Virginia State Meet with an AA 37.975 and taking 1st place on Bars as the State Champion. This qualified me for my first Regionals Meet at which I placed 2nd with an AA score of 38.00. I am training for the upcoming season as a level 9 and my training consist of about 32 hours in the summer and 25 hours a week during the school year in the gym as much as possible. My current coaches are Tami , Mary and Rex who have taught me so much that it is immeasurable. I am in the 7 grade at Gildersleeve Middle School in the AP program with A and A/B honor roll. I have been on the A/B honor roll 3rd 4th, 5th, and 6th grade. When I am not in the gym or attending school my favorite things to do is Aerials Silks. Casted in The Tarzan play at the Williamsburg Theatre this was a highlight to show off my gymnastic skills as a monkey with Silks performing show stopping aerials in mid air!!! Theatre has captured my heart too. To be nominated for the Top 100 Gymnast of the Year is an honor that I never dreamed of. " If you can believe it, then it is possible". My dream is to become an elite gymnast and earn a spot on a Division 1 College Team. I understand the persistent and dedication this requires which I am willing to put in the time. Most of all I would like to Thank YOU for considering me as one of your nominees. Looking forward to an awesome season with my teammates and sisters at heart!!!!!
Ashlee started gymnastics in a mom and tot class when she was 18 months old. Full of energy and never afraid to try something new, she quickly advanced and started competing Level 3 at age 6 with Texas Champion Gymnastics. She won 2nd All Around at North State. She then competed Level 4 and qualified for State. Coaches Anatoli Toropov and Gelena Helen Verucchi saw potential for advancement and started training her. In March 2015, she competed one meet during off season for Level 5, skipped Level 6, and started training Level 7. While in Level 7, Ashlee achieved Texas State Champion on Vault, Bars and All Around. After the season, although she loved her coaches, she decided to change gyms. She realized that gymnastics was something she wanted to pursue seriously and decided to set her goal for elite. Ashlee was lucky to find the perfect fit at World Olympic Gymnastics Academy (WOGA). The moment she stepped into the gym she was mesmerized by seeing past Olympians on the wall that had trained there. It was then that she realized her dream could truly become a reality with the help of the best coaches: Egor Grebenkova, Megan Haught and Nataliya Marakova. Her Level 8 season was the best by far. She scored her first 10.0 on bars at the City of Lights Invitational in Orlando, Florida and obtained the title Texas State Champion on Bars, Floor and All Around with a 39.000. Unfortunately, at Regionals, she rolled her ankle during her floor routine and was unable to continue competing. In 2018, Ashlee started her level 9 season at the California Grand Invitational where she won 1st on Bars; Texas Prime, 1st on Beam and 2nd AA; Buckeye Classic, 1st on Vault, Beam and Floor and 1st AA; WOGA Classic, 1st Vault Bars and 2nd AA. Due to an injury, she was unable to attend Texas State Championship and petitioned into Region 3 where she won silver on bars. After her level 9 season, Ashlee was selected to travel to Netherlands to compete at the International Ascension Gymnastics Competition with her WOGA teammates. Team WOGA took home gold. A week later, she completed in the Auburn National Elite qualifier. She earned her HOPES score for compulsory and optional. She is currently training for the 2018 HOPES Classic in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Hi, I'm Kyra! I started gymnastics at 3 years old at the YMCA in Joplin, MO where I started competing in a YMCA League at age 5. After moving to Kansas City, I started competing USAG Level 4 at age 6. In 2018 I finished my 4th year as a Level 10. Some of my Level 10 accomplishments include : JO National Qualifier - 2015 (NIT), 2016 (9th Vault), 2017 (5th Beam, 8th Vault, 18th AA), 2018 (1st Bars, 6th Beam, 1st AA); 2018 JO National Team Member; 2018 Region 4 Vault, Beam and AA Champion. I am verbally committed to the University of Missouri (Go Tigers!) on a full ride scholarship beginning in 2020-2021. After college I want to go into the medical profession (and maybe coach gymnastics too). I currently work at my gym as a Girls Instructional and Excel Coach and I also help with floor choreography for the Excel Program. In my spare time I love to draw, make Pinterest crafts, spend time with friends and family and watch Netflix - especially Grey's Anatomy. Gymnastics has given me so many opportunities (like this one!) and I can't wait to see what the future holds! Last season was amazing and I am ready for the next one!
Kendall started gymnastics when she was just 3 years old. She was participating in a ballet class and her instructor quickly pointed out that ballet was not likely in Kendall's future (since she was upside down most of the time in class). She recommended that Kendall try gymnastics. Based on her recommendation, we enrolled Kendall in gymnastics for the first time in an after school program sponsored by Infinite Bounds. Shortly thereafter Kendall was asked to join a "pre-team". As Kendall's passion for the sport grew she learned about Kurt Thomas Gymnastics, we loved the gym and their approach to training, and she joined the KT team as a Level 3 gymnast. She quickly progressed through levels 4-7 between 2013 - 2015. Kendall was the Level 8 Texas State All Around Champion in 2015-2016. She broke her ankle in December of 2016 and was unable to compete most of the 2016-2017 season but, she petitioned to compete at Regionals and after only four weeks back she was able to place 14th AA at Regionals, qualifying for Westerns, and then place 8th AA at Westerns. 2017-2018 was a breakout year. Competing at L9, Kendall placed 1st AA in 4 of 6 regular season meets including Chows Challenge and the Biles Invitational. Plus she won 1st AA at Texas State, 2nd AA at Regionals and 1st AA at L9 Western Championships for a total of 6 of 9 1st place AA titles.

Graduating Year: 2023
I studied the sport of gymnastics as a little girl, hoping one day to actually take classes. I would watch You Tube videos and stare at library book pictures; admiring the beauty of this sport. FINALLY, my parents signed me up, at the age of 10, for my very first recreation class! That was in February 2015. Since then, I have worked really hard to learn as much as I can in a short amount of time! I still study the sport and make goals for myself every season. It seems like yesterday, when I started learning basics on the equipment. My first season to compete was in 2016 at Level 7. I was able to test out of Levels 2-6 in about 9 months! My parents and I didn't really understand what that meant as it was happening, though. I just loved learning new skills and my coaches thought I was doing them technically correct. It didn't seem "special" at the time; it just felt "right." In my level 7 season, it started fantastic! In two meets, I won floor and beam and earned 2nd All Around. Sadly, one day in practice, I fell and broke my elbow. I had to have major elbow surgery and 4 months of rehab. It was so frustrating! As soon as my season started, it was over. But, I fought hard and worked hard to keep a positive attitude, focusing on my future goals. Soon, I was training for Level 8 and moved to Sarasota, FL with my Coach. It was a really big decision and an exciting commitment for my whole family. All of my rehab, and hard work paid off in my Level 8 season in 2017! It was the first FULL season I had ever competed! I earned State Champion for Floor and Beam! At Regionals, I won the Floor and All Around Gold!! Last season, in 2018, Level 9 was incredible!! I continued to train hard and learn a lot of new skills. Competing these new skills was definitely challenging, but I embraced the challenge. All season, I was in the top 5 on every event. I won GOLD at every meet but one on floor and beam! I also won All Around at every meet with a high score of the season of 38.500!! I am the Florida State Champion for Bars, Beam, Floor and ALL Around!! I am the Florida Regional Champion for Beam, Floor and All Around!! Easterns was an amazing experience and I felt so thankful to qualify and compete there. I had a great meet, earning a Silver medal on Floor and 5th All Around. I am currently training Level 10 and hope to qualify as a Junior Elite this 2019 season. Gymnastics continues to feed a deep hunger inside of my heart. That little girl, who just started not too long ago, is still hungry for more!!
HI, I'm Tatum & I started gymnastics at the age of 2. It took me a few different invitations to join the competitive team at my gym. It was a beautiful pink leo with rhinestones that finally won me over and after competing & winning AA at my first meet I was hooked! I am now training level 9/10 at Oklahoma City Gymnastics in OKC, OK. My amazing coaches Giovanna (Gou) Romero & Manuel Navarez push me to do my best & to reach my goals. This last season, I was the top qualifier for the Oklahoma team that represented our state at the National Judges Cup State Challenge in Portland, OR. I finished 2nd AA at that meet & the Oklahoma team finished 4th.. Another highlight of this past season was receiving the Nadia Spirit award at the Nadia Comaneci Invitational presented by Nadia herself. As a level 8, I finished top two at every regular season meet and ended my season as the Region 3 Bar and Floor champ and 3rd in the AA. My long term goal is to compete in college & be able to give back to my sport through coaching & judging. I love my gym, coaches, & gym family! I feel very blessed to be able to participate in such an awesome sport with a great group of awesome girls. It is such a great honor to be nominated for Gymnast of the Year!!! I feel that God has given me a great talent & I hope to give Him all the glory!
I am a Junior at Boone High School in Orlando and a level 10 gymnast at Orlando Metro. I won the level 10 State Championship on bars in 2018 and was also the All Around champion finishing 2nd on beam and floor, and 3rd on vault with a 38.35. I finished 12th at Nationals in 2018.
Lily is 12 years old and in the 7th grade. She will be entering her second season as a level 10 in 2019 and will also be attempting to qualify as a Junior Elite. This past year she competed as a first year level 10 while also competing in her first season of HOPES. She won the all around title at her first two meets as a level 10 (The Gopher Invite and the Chows Winter Classic). At her first level 10 state meet she placed 3rd in the all around and qualified to Region 4 Regionals. At regionals she placed 3rd in the all around again and earned her spot at level 10 Nationals! At her first ever level 10 Nationals she placed 5th in the all around, with a score of 37.775. She earned her HOPES compulsory qualifier score at her first national qualifier, the City of Lights meet in Orlando, Florida. She earned her HOPES optional qualifier score at the Auburn elite qualifier meet in Tacoma, Washington. Having earned both her optional and compulsory qualifier scores qualified her to compete in the HOPES Classic meet in Salt Lake City, Utah. At the HOPES Classic meet she placed 2nd in the all around with a score of 51.050, this qualified her to compete in the HOPES Championship meet in Columbus, Ohio. At the HOPES Championship meet she placed 4th in the all around with a score of 50.20 and was named to the HOPES National Team. Lily's journey to becoming an elite gymnast started when she was 8 years old. She began competing as a level 3 when she was 8 years old, she then competed as a level 4 when she was 9 years old, then as a level 5 and 7 when she was 10 years old. She competed as a level 8 when she was 11 years old, when she was a part of the Minnesota Super 8 Team. She scored out of level 9 when she was 12 years old. So in just 4 short years she went from a level 3 to a level 10/HOPES gymnast. She trains a maximum of 25 hours per week. She is still enrolled in public school and hopes to continue to be in public school for as long as possible.
Hanh started as a dancer at the age of four. After being a competitive dancer for couple years, it was decided for her to take a tumbling class during the summer to help with balance and strength. Hanh quickly fell in love with gymnastics and was invited to join the compulsory team at Sokol Elite, at the age of 7. After finishing up her dance season, Hanh made the switch to gymnastics full time and began competing the following year, in September 2013, as a level 3. Hanh was consistently in the top 3 in all her levels. Her personal best was a perfect 10 score on floor with an AA of 39.425 in level 7. Hanh also went on to winning the bars, vault, floor and AA titles at the Region 1 Championships for level 8 last year. She plans to qualify for HOPES and continue pursuing her goals for a Division 1 scholarship.

I love gymnastics so much and hope to continue to improve and be the best elite gymnast I can be!
As a third-generation competitive gymnast, Baylie began competing at the age of five. Following in her grandmother’s and aunt’s footsteps, she has won state and regional titles, but began so at an earlier age. Baylie’s first state title came at the age of six and her first regional title at the age of nine. Baylie was selected to the TOPs Diamond Team at the age of seven and the TOPs National A Team at the age of eight. After making the 2015 TOPs National A Team, Baylie became a regular at the NTTC, training on invitation to the Developmental Camps.
