I have the exact same problem! I get so nervous at competitions! I practice my routines perfectly during training but they suck in competitions because im so nervous.
One thing I have recently been doing (which i think is helping) is not watching any routines of the gymnasts i'm competing against.
Also one time before beam i talked to a fellow gymnast and totally took my mind off the competition...and when i did my routine i didn't shake at all! Ok, i was a little shaky at the end, but it was so much better than usual (and i ended up getting 1st)lol
hope this helps XD
Well if you have an ipod listen to pump it up music and don't watch your teammates. I totally can't watch my teammates on beam if I have to go after them. SO I don't really watch them then I go and kick butt! haha
You just have to remember that you're doing this for yourself, and no one can stop you. This is your time to shine! Before I go, I just think to myself, "Hey, this is what I do, and I have the power to do it!" Just give it your all!!!! good luck!!!!
