Gymnastics Camp 2010

Wow! Time sure is flying by.

I can't believe we're on the downward slide of June and I've only posted 1 time.

What in the world?!?

I guess we've been too busy living life to blog about it - I'll try to do better.

Well, last week we were busy with gymnastics camp.  Olympia Gymnastics Camp, which is run by Olympic Champion Svetlana Boginskaya, comes to our home gym every year.  All of the girls just love it and she usually brings another Olympian with her and this year it was Chellsie Memmel.  She was so nice to all of the girls and they had a great time.

Here are some pictures from the last day when they put on their show.

Sorry I couldn't get the video of the routine to load - it was really cute.
She got to work with the Level 6's this week and was so excited.  She's on Level 5, actually, but is trying really hard to convince her coaches to move her up - they'll make their decision in August.

Here's Chellsie Memmel giving G her certificate and below is Svetlana and her wonderful team of coaches.

G added a lot of new skills - this week she accomplished:
double back handsprings on beam
fly aways
front tuck off the beam
switch leap on beam

Thanks OGC for a great week!

How fun! My sister was a competitive gymnast...and I admired all her hard work, and ripped up hands without complaint-very neat about this camp!
