Gymnastics Revolution NEWS

How is “success” defined?  Is it in winning?  Is it in improvement over time?  Is it in pride of accomplishment?  Whatever your definition for the word, Gymnastics Revolution houses the most successful gymnasts in the state of Connecticut, as evidenced by their performance at the State Championships on December 11, 2004.              

Colby, Erin, and Samantha M. were competing in only their second competition of the year.  They were given only one chance to qualify to the State Championships, held at Southern Connecticut State University, and they were successful.  This competition, in addition, was Erin’s playground, where she scored highly on all four events – in fact, she was one of only two gymnasts from Gymnastics Revolution whose scores from every event counted toward the team total. 


In terms of improvement, Katie, Brittany, Kathy, Kate, Alison, and Brooklyn were incredibly successful.  These 6 gymnasts were a year ago mediocre level 5’s, who have improved their level to the point where in those names, you see gymnasts who took top honors on many events, and had a tremendous impact on the overall score of the team.  Brittany and Katie also were strong enough to place 3rd in the All Around for their respective age groups.

And if winning is success, then Gymnastics Revolution has plenty of that, too.  Jennifer, 2nd place in the All Around, scored the highest Vault score of her age group.  Her 8.8 was the winning vault of the State Meet.  Sara topped the State on Floor Exercise, winning the meet with a 9.05.  Samantha B. was favored to win gold on the bars.  Her 9.05 was good for a silver medal performance, but she rallied on her next 3 events, taking first place on both Beam (9.4) and Vault (8.45).  As if that weren’t enough success, Samantha B. also brought home the gold in the All Around, being crowned State Champion with a 35.575. 


Note also, that Gymnastics Revolution’s Level 5 Team was successful in the Team Competition, as well.  Their 175.425 was enough for third place, only tenths behind the second place team.  It seems that no matter how you define it, these girls are the definition of success.
