Olympian Gymnastics Camp

Last week my little gymnast was able to attend a week long summer camp. That's exciting enough but this camp was run by real Olympians.

Svetlana Boginskaya to be more specific.

Not only was Svetlana there (and wonderful) but they also had Olympian Oksana Chusovitina.

She competed in the 2008 Summer Olympic games in Beijing and won the silver medal on vault.

I cannot tell you how much fun she had.

They were so good at coaching the girls and they had lots of one on one attention.

Here are a few pictures from her last day.

Sergei has a gym in Charlotte, NC. He's a wonderful coach. He as her balanced on his head - how funny.

Here is Svetlana today. Her daughter also did the camp with the girls & was in G's group.

Here is the coaching staff that did such a wonderful job.

Here's G getting her certificate from Oksana.

Her summer is off to a good start.

What about your family?

Any summer camps going on?

What a wonderful camp for your little gymnast!!! I bet she learned a lot of things. What fun to have all those "stars" teaching it!!!!

We are still playing machine pitch ball (5 games to go!!) and Lexi just started practice yesterday for the summer play she will be in.
