Team USA / Jessica wins GOLD!

Yesterday was day 3 of the World Age Group Competition and included synchro for the 13-14 age group.  Jessica and Ginger (ETA) performed a solid routine in the qualification round to earn them a third place finish and a spot in finals competition.  All 8 finalists completed their routines with no interruptions.  Jessica and Ginger stayed strong and did even better in finals and won the GOLD medal!  They had the highest difficulty of all 13-14 women.  Congratulations Jessica!  Awesome competition:  Individual trampoline finalist and synchro gold medalist.  You represented the US and Fairland well!  We are so proud of you!


Congratulations Jessica!

Jessica competed this afternoon in the 23rd World Age Group Competition in Daytona Beach, FL.  Jessica completed 2 awesome routines in qualifications-scoring a new personal best and qualifying for finals competition!  This evening she competed in finals and unfortunately fell mid-way through her routine (yes, she is ok) finishing in 8th place.  Jessica is the top USA finisher in the 13-14 age division!  What a great experience for her first time competing in the World Age Group Competition!  We are proud of you!  Tomorrow afternoon, Jessica will pair up with Ginger (ETA) to compete in synchro.  Good luck Jessica and Go Team USA!


Good Luck Jessica and Go Team USA!

Team Bonding . . .Scary

The level 10s and elites were scared this past weekend.  For once, their fright was not because of skills, drills, or the thought of conditioning!  Our 10s and elites took some time to have a little fun outside the gym at Kings Dominion Halloween Haunt.  A great time was had by all.  Lots of laughs, screams, and memories (and no, not everyone was scared)!  Those participating were:  Giselle, Ivanna, Wolfgang, Kelsey, Jessica, Lily, Jasmine, Miles, Alex B., Alex C., and, Konstantin.

Slavic Games conclude

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.
