Tyler Hambright (2023- Training Level 9) - Bull City Gymnastics: Durham, NC.Level 8
Coaches: Stephen & Amanda Maness
Graduating Year: 2023
First, I want to say how proud I am to be a part of the gymnastics community. There are so many amazing people in this sport and I feel so lucky to be surrounded and inspired by them every day. If it weren't for all the great people I've met along the way, my story would not be what it is! So, about me: I am 12 years old and training Level 9. When I was 8 years old I decided I really wanted to learn how to do a back handspring so my parents signed me up for gymnastics. I quickly fell in love with all aspects of gym even though I started out just wanting to tumble. As a late starter to the sport, I have had to work very hard to catch up to the athletes my age, but it has been an awesome journey. Even though it took me 18 months to finally get that back handspring I wanted, I remained determined. I am so glad I didn't give up because things really took off from there. Earlier this year, on my 4th anniversary of beginning gymnastics, I finished the season as a Region 8, Level 8, First Place AA, Vault and Beam Champion. That was very exciting! I am grateful for my coaches, my gym friends and all the fun experiences which are part of being a competitive gymnast. Thanks for letting me tell my story! Good luck to everyone this upcoming meet season!

Winning New York State Championships All Around with an overall score of 38.675, first place on vault, beam, and floor also winning Region 6 level 8 Regional Championships All with a score of 38.555, first place vault and floor.
I finished last season at Region 6 regionals, winning all around, beam, and vault, and at Eastern Championships, winning all around and beam and placing on all the other events as well. This year, I am a level 10 and I look forward to great season.

I am Elizabeth Gantner and I am 12 years old from Indianapolis, Indiana. I train at JPAC with my coaches, Dave Marus and Jaycie Phelps and I hope to qualify Junior Elite in 2018. After an amazing level 8 season in 2016, my coaches and I decided I would compete level 10 and try to qualify Hopes in 2017. Early in the year, I competed one meet at level 9 and achieved my elite compulsory score before competing my first level 10 meet at Metroplex in Texas. In February, I made my Hopes Optional score at the Brestyans Qualifier in Las Vegas. In my second ever level 10 all around meet in Orlando, I went 4 for 4 and qualified to the Nastia Liukin Cup with a 38.175. I followed that with another 38+ all around at our own JPAC Midwest Showdown. I had an amazing time at the Nastia Cup even though it wasn't my best meet. I went on to States, Regionals, and JO Nationals where I was State and Regional beam champion and finished third on beam at JO Nationals. I am thankful for all of the support from my family, my coaches and my teammates and look forward to 2018.
I am 12 years old and training Level 9/10 at WOGA. Previously coached by Laurent and Cecile Landi, I recently started training under Igor and Marina Vernyi and am very excited to grow and progress under their guidance. As a Level 8 in the 2017 Texas State Competition, I placed 3rd on Vault and Bars, 2nd on Floor, 1st on Beam and 2nd All Around. I started tot gymnastics classes with my mom and dad when I was 18 months old and have been doing gymnastics ever since. When I was 7 years old, I competed in my first meet on September 8, 2012. I was Level 4 and placed 6th on Vault and Bars, 5th on Beam, 1st on Floor and 4th All Around. I loved competing so much and knew that gymnastics was something that I wanted to keep doing and getting better at for a long time. Through the years, I tried lots of different sports and activities including soccer, softball, ice skating, dance and karate. While I had fun trying out different things, I never felt the drive and love for them like I do gymnastics. I am so grateful to be a part of the amazing gymnastics community and feel so blessed to be able to do what I love every day.

Hello, my name is Courtney McCann, nickname Court Short. I recently turned 12 years old, and I am training level 9 at WOGA Gymnastics under the direction of Yevgeny Marchenko, Sonia Haiou and Adam Duncan in Frisco, TX. I spend 7-8 hours/day training not only level 9 skills but also Olympic style skills. My favorite thing about gymnastics is learning new skills, and being with my teammates and coaches every day.

I am a Junior National Honor Society Member. In my spare time I volunteer around the community to fulfill my JNHS hours.
I began gymnastics when I was 3 years old. My first experience with gymnastics was at 1st class but I was only taking classes. I did not know that Coach Mary was working there. When I was 5 I switched to a gym close to home and Coach Mary was there! I started competing level 4 when I was 6 and have been with Coach Mary since. I competed and advanced every level and am now a level 10. Last year I qualified Hopes Elite Compulsory, but was just short of qualifying optionals as a level 9. This season I qualified elite compulsory at the Myrtle Beach Invitational and elite optional at the Brestyan's Las Vegas Invitational. I am excited to continue competing level 10 and look forward to the Hopes Classic this May! I am also getting ready to compete junior elite this month. I almost have all of my skills and will hopefully be ready for the KPAC Cup in North Carolina in March. I love gymnastics so much and hope to continue to improve and be the best elite gymnast I can be!

Training 20+ hours a week is fun...everyday I work harder than the last.
