The Big Meet

Last night was the "big" gymnastics meet for Calvin. "Big" in the fact that it wasn't just an intra squad meet, but the only one against another team, from a nearby YMCA. It was fun, and you could tell the kids were a bit more nervous than usual.

Here are the vids. Level 3s started on the vault, and Calvin scored an incredible 9.8:

Next he was on the bar. He had a rough time on them last night. I think he scored an 8.something:

Then they moved to the beam. I was nervous for him and don't remember his score, but he got first!

Lastly, they finished on the floor. I believe he scored a 9.0, and got third place:

After tallying all the scores, he won the All-Around trophy for the 8 and under Level 3s! He had told me the night before that he was hoping for that because "you know what, Mama? You get to take the trophy HOME!".
It was hard for him to go to sleep last night. :)

Next meet: November 29

How old is your Calvin? How long has he been taking gymnastics? I just started my 7 year old grandson and 4 year old granddaughter in gymnastics. So far they love it. I do this kind of thing in lieu of toys, etc. for Christmas.

Congratulations to Calvin! If he keeps going this way, he will wind up with a college education free! =)
