Marvin Kimble put together two incredible days of powerhouse gymnastics, as he successfully defended his 2012 JO Nationals all-around championship. Day 1 was an incredible masterpiece, blowing up the scoreboard with a mind-boggling 94.05. …

Day 2 was not quite as explosive, given the technical sequences format, but he performed the routines expertly to win the all-around by almost 7 points. …

Kimble won an incredible 5 event titles. The only one that slipped away was VT, where he placed 3rd. The 15-16 age division has a staggering amount of talent. …

Akash Modi posted the day’s 2nd highest Day 2 scores (both age divisions) and climbed back to win the all-around title in the 17-18 age group. Modi also perfected the art of consistency by placing in the top 5 on six events, and winning an event title on PB.
