Five Medals

Last night was Calvin's third gymnastics meet this season. For the first time, he won a medal in each event, for a total of five medals! (I'm not really sure how they decided how many medals to award in each event, but it has something to do with the # of gymnasts in each level). Here are the videos:

First, he started on the floor, and placed third, with a score of 8.85:

Next, the beam, with a score of 9.15 and second place:

Then bars, with a score of 8.95 and fourth place:

Lastly, the vault, with a score of 9.6 and first place:

(He always looks so darn serious during gymnastics!) Calvin also won the All Around medal, with a total score of 36.55. Some of these scores for the events were so close, only separated by .05 in some cases. It showed the kids how important each aspect of a routine is, such as pointed toes, keeping legs together and straight, and not touching your uniform or hair (did you know? that's a deduction during a routine!).

These gymnastics meet posts are starting to all look the same. :)

"not touching your uniform or hair (did you know? that's a deduction during a routine!)."

Well, that explains some of the serious wedgies I've seen during Olympics coverage. :grin:

Congrats to Calvin! How cool are all those medals!!

Calvin, you continue keeping your hair short and you won't need to worry about touching it. You look great! Love Grandpa Roger
