My name is Gabriela Batol but my nickname that everybody calls me is “Molly”. I started gymnastics when I was 2 years old and got on to the competitive team when I was 6. In December, I will turn 12. For my whole 8 years of gymnastics, I have trained at Kona Aerials gymnastics in Hawaii under the supervision of Nanette Guiffrida. I am super excited to be one of the top 100 nominees and am also super excited to be the only gymnast from Hawaii to be nominated in this amazing award. As I moved up in level, I also matured and improved each year. During my last season while I competed as a level 8, I made it to Regionals and made it to the level 8 All-Star team and scored a 10 on beam at the collegiate-style meet. Also, during the individual competition, I got 2nd AA. This year I am looking forward to the challenges of training as a level 9. Thank you to all of my coaches and teammates at Kona Aerials for supporting me!Read more..
