Talk about consistency!
Former Canadian World Championships competitor Ashley Peckett (Gymnastics Mississauga) is in her final season in the NCAA.
… one of the most consistent gymnasts in UCLA history, hitting 99 of her last 101 routines without a fall, including 40 of 41 this season. She has become a valuable all-around contributor this year, averaging 39.075 in five meets, with a high of 39.35 set in the win over previously unbeaten Georgia on Mar. 4.
But how’s she doing at school?
Peckett, who boasts a cumulative GPA of 3.75 in Physiological Science, earns her third career Pac-10 academic award.

FIG adopted the “vault table” â€” and tens of thousands of the old style vault horses became superfluous. (Jan 1, 2003 the table became mandatory for Levels 5-10 in the USA.)
What did you do with your old horse?
Here’s one idea I saw in Australia.
It’s used for vault drills jumping from tramp, landing in the pit.
