I’m assuming most kids can compete level 1-4 and xcel bronze/silver. At what level, both xcel and DP, do you think a gymnast actually has to display talent/athleticism to continue to move forward? My daughter has some past teammates who haven’t progressed past lower levels after multiple years of working on the same skills. I know some say hard work beats out talent, but at some point don’t you have to have some athleticism/talent to continue to move forward in the sport? What is the point where the average athlete says this is too hard and quits? Not taking into account puberty growth, mental blocks, etc. as that impacts when some quit. I’m talking just skill wise, at what level do you need talent to keep moving forward?
