These are some of my Rhythmic Gymnastic medals. Sorry for this, but I just miss doing RG o much and yesterday I went through some memories… I needed to talk a little about it… Also, maybe the gymnasts that are not very flex and think that they can’t be good gymnasts, they should read it (:
I started Rhythmics in 2009, when I was 13. The year before I practised Artistic but just for one year. I’ve never been a very good gymnast since I’m not flexible but I’ve always kept in mind that flexibility is not the most important thing in this sport. I may have been the gymnast that couldn’t barely touch her head on her feet but, honestly, I had the best balances, some of the best leaps and my pivots were amazing (while the flex girls could do only 2 rotations I could do 7 or 8). I was proud of myself not for what I could do but for never giving up and always keep trying, even when my coach would say I wasn’t worth it.
In august 2011 I quit with RG because my coach humiliated me. I couldn’t handle it, so I left the sport. Anyways, I still danced, Ballet. It was not my passion but at least I could dance a little… Then I moved to another country and started RG again, late in 2012 but in the next year I had to quit because it was too expensive and I couldn’t pay for it. Since then I’ve been trying to find a place to practise on my own. Sadly, I couldn’t find a good place yet… I’ll never stop searching for it and training at home anyway. It’s my passion for this sport that never leaves me and that makes me keep moving.
I could improve a lot and I reached some goals between 09/11
I attended to 3 competitions during 2008 for AG.
I attended to 14 competitions from 2009 to 2011 in which I won 2 bronze medals with ball, 1 silver with hoop, 2 bronze in Group.
I know it’s not much, but, for me, it’s the best thing ever! And I’m proud of every single medal I won, even the ones that just represent participation on the event. Okay, that’s all (:
