Q & A with “Izzy”
Favorite Event:Floor Best events? Floor and Beam
Goals:Possibly Elite but DEFINITELY College Gymnastics!
What are some of your favorite things about this sport? Sometimes taking on a new skill is a little scary but exciting & there can be the feeling I can’t figure it out or do it. Then I figure out that just listening to my coaches reassure me and talk me through it & just trusting my training…I realize I can accomplish things I never thought possible! THAT is the thing that makes me love it more and more. There’s always a challenge and something to make better.
Hobbies? Hanging out with friends, swimming, biking & spending time with my dog 🙂
If you weren’t in gymnastics, what do you think you’d be doing? Well, definitely wouldn’t have been home playing with dolls or doing ballet (lol) I was never the girly-girl type! I’d probably be on the sidelines of my brother’s sports (wrestling or football) so MAYBE…. a cheerleader but luckily I don’t have to worry about that!
Fun Fact: Until Coach Brittany called me “Izzy,” I NEVER EVER EVER would let anyone give me that nickname. Now some of my gymnastics friends probably don’t even know who Isabella is!
