Thanks to the New York Post for creating this video featuring me!
Elle’s first meet as an Optional gymnast was the Golden State Classic on January 8, 2017. She competed as a Level 7, having skipped Level 6 after completing her Level 5 season in November 2016.
Elle debuted her new routines. She completed a beautiful Floor routine, and had falls on both her Bars and Beam routines. All in all, it was a great start to the new season, with lots of room for growth.
Floor 9.300 4th
On January 7, 2017, Elle competed in the Vaughn Weightlifting NorCal Open. She went 6 for 6 on her lifts, scoring 28kg on her Snatch and 35kg on her Clean & Jerk, for a Total of 63kg. This was Elle’s first Olympic weightlifting competition since winning the National Youth Championship back in June.
Elle won First Place in the Youth division at this meet, which qualifies her to compete at the Barbells For Boobs competition in October.
This was also Elle’s first time competing as part of a team. After she became a National Champion, her coach formed a barbell club, Endgame Athletics, so now she has teammates!
I need to update this blog! Here are the results of Elle’s Level 5 season, from Fall 2016.
Elle competed at the Flipping Over the Valley meet on October 16, 2016. Her results were:
Vault 9.275 2nd
Bars 8.850 4th
Beam 9.025 1st 🏅
Floor 8.675 3d
AA 35.825 3rd place
Elle competed at the Moon Festival meet on October 23, 2016. Her results were:
Vault 9.125 5th
Bars 8.750 8th
Beam 9.275* 1st 🏅
Floor 8.850 6th
AA 36.000 2d place
Finally, Elle competed at the NorCal State Championships on November 6, 2016. With a fall on Beam, her results were:
Vault 9.000 5th
Bars 9.000 8th
Floor 9.075 8th
AA 35.350 9th place
This marks the end of Elle’s time as a USAG Compulsory gymnast. The compulsory levels go up to Level 5; these levels all perform the exact same routines across the USA. Elle is advancing to Level 7, skipping Level 6. She is now an Optional gymnast, meaning that the routines for all the girls, or for each team, are all individualized.
Bleacher Report came out and filmed Elle at Endgame Athletics a few weeks ago. They produced this cool video!
Keep an eye out on Tuesday, November 8 (Election Day) for my latest project. Bleacher Report came out recently to video me at my barbell club and my gymnasium. I can’t wait to see the finished product!
Look for it on BleacherReport.com, their social media, and their app.
