Reflections are still being posted. Kyla is very popular with fans, gymnasts and teammates.
I started writing this but kept procrastinating and putting it off. Somehow, me not writing my goodbye will mean she never left. Right?
If you haven’t heard, it was yesterday afternoon that Kyla Ross – the 19-year-old who made her elite debut in 2009, won an Olympic gold medal three years later, and went on to win five world medals without taking more than a few weeks off – announced her retirement on social media. ..

What is there to say about Kyla?
Kyla is beautiful.
Her gymnastics is beautiful.
I will always miss her beautiful double twisting Yurchenko where she had a cat like sense of finding the landing. Uneven bars always served as Kyla’s claim to fame where a beautiful Jaeger and floaty double layout earned her a spot in multiple international event finals and even a silver medal at the 2013 World Championships. With Kyla fully extending through her shoulders, I suddenly was able to appreciate a bail to handstand. Something I never thought was humanly possible. …
We can pretty much assume that Kyla will make more history as a UCLA Bruin. 🙂
