Region 5 had 4 Eastern National Floor Champions in 2022 throwing out some big scores, huge jumping, powerful tumbling and fun choreography, in the process. Our Level 9 Floor Champions definitely came to play and to impress. I think Ariana Goodwin’s double pike is still in the rafters in Rochester. Floor is always one of my favorite events to watch and this 4 Level 9 athletes definitely did not disappoint. This group will have no trouble kicking it up a notch for this coming season and certainly for the jump to Level 10, we are in for a great crop of floor workers in the coming years.
I was not able to be present at the 2022 Level 9 Eastern Championships this year do to the coaching of my Xcel athletes at their Regional Championships, but I do have to say from watching the competition videos (provided by David Yellen) I absolutely LOVED how each athlete was individually announced prior to taking the floor! What a special moment to have all eyes on them as they took center stage to show off their performances.
