EXCELLENT – Level 10 gymnastics Championships

The girls are even better than I expected. And there are so many talented girls. Hundreds.

I followed “the babies”, the youngest competitors.

Beam
Good tumbling, in general. Backward layout 2 1/2 twists were not uncommon. Most girls stayed on the apparatus.

Vault
Younger Level 10s showed layout Yurchenko or Handspring front, minimum. I was shocked at how many tiny kids were able to do good Yurchenko 1/1. (I wouldn’t believe 50lb kids have enough mass to deflect the beat board.)


Floor

The top gymnasts showed two double somersaults. Most often double pike and double tuck. There were very few double Arabians from the younger girls.
