Jonah had high hopes for himself at this meet and I wish I could say he was a happy dude when it was over, but there were tears. As he talked to his coach, I watched Jonah try to be so brave. He was trying so hard to be a big boy and hold back the tears. It just was not working and my heart was broken.
|Waiting for his team to be announced|
|Getting his bronze state medal and looking very unhappy|
10.1 on rings and still no medal. He was quite sad about this
9.9 on floor and again sadness
9.3 on vault. He really wanted a vault medal.
9.2 on parallel bars
9.4 on pommel horse
8.5 on high bar
His AA was 56.4. His AA in December was 51.1. That is a remarkable improvement to me for four months of work. I am proud of Jonah. He is officially finished competing as a level four gymnast. Next December he will be one of the youngest level five competitors at the meets. I know he will be great!
