How did it go @ SGA, any results or standouts in L4 & 5 ?
The calibre of gymnastics was awesome! 38.0 all arounds and nothing below 9.3 winning the top three medal spots. It was eye opening for many of my own athletes and parents, but that could be a whole other post.
I was proud of my athletes, but they did fall short of my expectations. We've made a lot of progress of our own during summer practices, not to the point of vying for those medalas, but not a lot of that improvement showed up while on the spot. A lot of nerves brought bad habits back.
It will come during our regular season.
As for my Mo, I'm deeply concerned about her. She competed well enough, wasn't miserable, not quite herself but she made it through with her average scores, but a fall on beam that is uncharacteristic. However, as I'm writing from the hotel room, she hasn't been able to shake this cough for a week now. She barely ate anything after the meet, slept from 5:30 last night until 7:00 this morning. We went to have breakfast and she just about passed out on me. I had to carry her back to the room and I have managed to get her to eat a banana, saltines, and watermelon. Going to be on a fluid search here soon. We are just a bit higher altitude, but I have a mom who has nursed a child through pneumonia and is strongly encouraging me to get her checked out. I definitely will, but first we have to get home... a four hour drive.
Will keep you posted.
