Yes, this girl is upside down. She’s on a trampoline and has just hurled herself up into the air to do multiple flips before landing once again on the trampoline mat. This is just one of the events my daughter does as part of a tumbling and trampoline team. When she first started TnT, she became the Trampoline State Champion for her age group and level.
Another event she has mad skills in is tumbling. On the left is a picture of a rod floor. She can do a series of back handsprings, like you see the girl doing here, from one end of the rod floor to the other (that’s about 19 of them). At her level, she has added WHIPS into her routine. That requires her to do what this girl is doing, but NO HANDS touch the floor!
The final event she participates in is the Double Mini Trampoline. Like this girl, she jumps on the first mini trampoline, does some kind of trick before landing on the second mini trampoline, and then does a trick during her dismount. At first, the Double Mini was her nemesis. Now, she’s amazing on it!
Well, at the State Championships a couple of weeks ago, my daughter qualified for the Junior National Olympics in all events, and we couldn’t be prouder or happier for her. She’s been in gymnastics since she was four years old. She’s twelve now and has finally realized her dream.
We’re now looking for donations to help get her there because it’s going to cost us about $1000 to stay for the required amount of time. It’s during the week of July 4th -11th and in Long Beach, California, so at least we can drive there and back.
I’m asking all who are interested to please donate any amount you can and you will receive a free SPECIAL EDITION, NEVER BEFORE SEEN SHORT STORY FROM THE BRETHREN, delivered to your email on July 3rd and a picture of Youngest doing her thing after the Junior Olympics!
When you comment below, “Yes, I’d like to help send Youngest to the Junior National Olympics,” and leave your email, I will contact you personally with my Paypal account.
Thank you, in advance, for any donation you can make.
