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. I currently train at Xtreme Gymnastic and Trampoline in Lee's Summit, MO where 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. Pushing through many different struggles, I am currently competing my 5th year as a level 10. 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 work with kids(and maybe coach gymnastics too). I currently work at my gym as a Girls Instructional and Xcel Coach and I also help with floor choreography for the Xcel 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 taught me so many lessons (determination, commitment, and love) and I can't wait to see what the future holds!Read more..
