20 Questions with National Qualifier Nicole Borkowski

Nicole Borkowski of  New Heights Gymnastics in Ohio, has come a long way in the last year or so. Nicole has upgraded many of her routines on almost all events, qualified to her first JO Nationals and has really made a name for herself. I truly enjoy watching this athlete especially on vault! Nicole has never disappointment on that event, she can stick a full twisting Yurchenko like its nobodies business. Nicole, who is currently uncommitted, will enter into her senior year in the fall.
