We were at this meet and I saw her up close and personal! I was coaching our team on floor while she was going on beam. It was amazing just to be in the same room as her, none the less, about 10 feet away! The energy in the room gave me goose bumps!!! All eyes were on her and deservingly so. She was OUTSTANDING and such an inspiration to everyone in the room!!!!
