Well we found this club local to us and she joined sometime in February I think and has been working toward her Level 5 competition. On March 17th we went along to the club for her to take part. I don't think I have ever seen her so nervous before, she was also a little upset as her leotard and shorts hadn't turned up in time (I am delighted to say they are here now though and she will be wearing them tonight, yay), but she struggled on in the face of adversity!
We turned up and everywhere you looked there were people, I have never seen the club so full and the coaches were even saying how big this group was, I don't think this helped with her nerves. We managed to get some seats two rows from the front and I managed to perch on an aisle seat so I could get some photos and video. We aren't normally allowed to photograph whilst they are doing gymnastics because as you can imagine lots of children in leotards will attract the wrong sort of crowd. I digress.
I will put below two videos for you, one of Grace's Floor routine and one of her beam routine.
Grace also won 3rd place for her beam routine, which we are so, so proud of seeing the amount of children that were there. Here is a little collage for you of some photos from the day. As you can see from one of them as to how nervous she was.
