    Fear of going backward on Beam

    Beam can be a tough event so don't stress too much. Getting scared is pretty common. Take little steps until you're ready to do it consistantly on the high beam. Get some mats and put them over the low beam, get your coach to help you and just work your way up. Don't stress, it will come back.

    America vs Australia

    Well in Australia, there are alot less people than in America. And the Australian system is in streams (State, National and Internatinal), so sometimes you have kids jumping from stream to stream. Also the clubs that have kids in the international programs, tend to do better in all the other...

    Relationship between sportists
