Welcome home Fairland athletes and coaches!  The Slavic Games provided so many learning experiences for our athletes:  food, money, language, (big) time change, hotels that still use actual keys (not cards), underground tunnels/walkways, bus tour, museum:  so many stories—such exhausted kids!  More importantly, our athletes gained so much experience and learned a lot from competing in an international competition as well as being able to watch the finals competition of the World Cup.

We are very proud of all 5 athletes (Sean, Lindsay, Lily, Jessica, and Delilah).  Fairland brought home 3 medals!  Sean paired up with Andrew from T&T Express to win the silver medal in Senior men’s synchro.  Jessica won the bronze medal in individual trampoline (13-14 girls).  Delilah paired up with Sophia from T&T Express to win the bronze medal in Senior women’s synchro.

After the long flight to Belarus Tuesday night / Wednesday morning, Fairland athletes wasted no time getting into their competition groove.  Even though they arrived in Belarus Wednesday morning, they had a light training session Wednesday afternoon.  Thursday started off with a morning training session and Qualification (preliminary) competition began Thursday evening.  All Qualification rounds finished today (Friday), and finals competition will be Saturday.  Congratulations to all our athletes.  We are proud of you!  Results from the Qualification Round are:

USA Gymnastics Championships – Friday recap

After 3 long days of competition, Fairland had a morning free of competition.  It gave our athletes and coaches a short, but welcomed break to sleep in, relax, sight-see, and catch up on life!

Eli and Alex (JJ) started the afternoon with a silver medal in lvl 9, 15-16 boys synchro, and Kelsey and Delilah finished the afternoon with the gold medal in open elite synchro.

This evening kicked off individual trampoline for the senior elites.  Deana gave us a scare with her fall, but we were all happy to see her up and walking shortly afterwards.  It was great seeing Wolfgang back out on the competition floor.  Congratulations to Ivanna and Deana for qualifying for the semi-finals competition!

Tomorrow will be another busy day for Fairland.  The day starts early with Jessica participating in the ODP/EDP demonstration.  Our four Regional All-Stars (Stephanie, Delilah, Lily, and Sean) will compete in the Regional All-Star Competition at 1:00 pm in the Kentucky International Convention Center.  Junior and Open Elite finals are shortly thereafter in the KFC YUM! Center.  The competition concludes tomorrow night with Senior Elite Semi-finals and Finals.  Check out the live webcast at

National Championships (Schedule)


Congratulations to all Fairland athletes who made it to National Championships. As all of you know, Nationals will be held in Louisville, KY. If you read through this post, you will be able to find a detailed schedule for each athlete. The letter A or B in each column refers to which set of equipment athlete is competing, ie. Trampoline #A or Trampoline #B. At Nationals there will be two sets of Trampolines, two Double-Mini Trampolines, and two Tumbling strips. You need to arrive at the competition arena 5 minutes before your training time or warm-up and 45 minutes before your flight that is listed on my detailed schedule. If you are in the first flight you need to be there 30 minutes before the session start time.

Please review the schedule that I prepared and compare it with the start lists on the USAG website. If you notice any discrepancies, please let me know right away. Athletes will need passes to enter the convention center during competition sessions. I will distribute athlete passes during the training session.

All athletes must be in full warmups when in staging.
