GK US Classic Coverage Page
The 2019 HOPES season came to an end today with the HOPES Championships which is are part of the GK US Classic weekend. Region 5 qualified three athletes and all found themselves on the podium. Izzy Stassi from Five Star was the top finisher for Region 5 finishing 3rd in the 10-11 year age group. Izzy had a solid all around performance and vaulted her way to 2nd place with her nice Yurchenko full. Buckeye’s Carly Weinburg finished 6th in the 10-11 all around and grabbed 2nd place on bars with a nice toe handstand Pac Salto combo. Our only 12-13 year old, Gabby Van Frayen started the competition off strong but struggled a bit in her last rotation balance beam to finish 9th all around. Gabby however did a nice Yurchenko full to finish 3rd on vault. Though there were some mistakes, these three athletes did a great job in their first HOPEs championships and now they can give their bodies and minds a rest and begin working on upgrades for the 2020 JO and Elite season.
