I took the SAT test and now I have to wait for the results. In a mean while I'll be getting ready for World Cup series in Glasgow and Ghent (both in Europe). I'm still looking at different universities and deciding where I would like to study and who to compete for. But the list is narrowing down and I hope to start in January ;). top

Back from La Serena, Chile
Hi everybody...it's been great experience go to La Serena World Cup 2004. They have very nice land in La Serena, well organized competition, lot of wonderful fans and good food (although needs little more variety ;).

La Serena World Cup competition hosted only about 14 women gymnasts and about twice as much male gymnasts. Despite of small number of women gymnasts the competition had pretty good quality thanks to American Elizabeth Trincase, Marcia Newby and Carly Janiga. Also Brazilian girls Daniele Hypolito and Merly De Jesus and Dutch Laura Van Leeuwen. Laura showed everybody how a world class routine on uneven bars should look like (I'm going to work on my bar routine now to make it as good as hers - hopefuly better :).

I missed finals on bars and floor just by couple hundreds of a tenth and made finals only on beam (see results bellow).

I performed on the beam very consistently (no falls in qualification, semi-finals neither finals). U.S.A.'s Carly Janiga fell in qualification and finals from her "E" valued skill "tuck full" performed after back-handspring step out. Danielle Hypolito of Brazil fell from the beam as well in the finals competition. Maybe she was nervous or just tired. Danielle competed in three event finals - bars, beam and floor exercise.

For pictures from this competition please visit my "Photo" section of the website and than click on "La Serena 2004 World Cup" gallery to view it. ....view the gallery now. top

Asking for Advice

Question:
Hey,
My name is Nicole and I have always dreamed of being a gymnast. I was wondering how long it took you to learn everything and how hard it was. I would love it if you could give me some advice on being a gymnast.
Thanks.
-Nicole

Answer:
Hi Nicole,

Thanks for being interested in Artistic Gymnastics.

I became a gymnast when I was 4 years old...so I have done gymnastics for 16 years now!!!

It is not easy to learn any of the gymnastics skills because it takes everyday practice and lot of sweat. It would be very hard to tell you "how to become gymnast" step by step and day by day...but I recommend, if you make decision to dedicate yourself to become a gymnast, that you get into the gym and start ASAP. Of course you will need a coach in the gym but you can also improve your gymnastics and learn faster if you understand what the skills need to look like, how they need to be performed and what preparation exercises you can do at home to become better faster. You should do lots of strength exercises and stretching. Strength will help you hold your body in the right position while performing your skills and stretching will allow you the range of motion that some skills may require!

There are lots of videos for sale on the web but also free articles that you can read to better understand gymnastics. One site like that is www.CoachWayne.com. Coach Wayne writes articles mostly about tumbling which is also big part of gymnastics.

I hope this answered some of your questions you have about what to do to become a gymnast. top

Who's my olympic coach.
Lot's of people are asking "who's your olympic coach?" Well, my coach is my husband William Wayne Evans AKA ~CoachWayne!. He is from Savannah, GA, USA for many generations and he is the one that goes to practices with me all year long while I'm in the US. Wayne is my executive coach and manager too. Slovak Olympic Committee with Slovak Gymnastics Federation decided to send with me to Athens Olympics 2004 my earlier coach, Katarina Krekanova. Katarina was my coach in 2001 for about 8 months right before I paused my gymnastics career in November 2001. I also trained with Katarina for 3 months before the OG while I was in Slovakia for pre-olympic training camp. See more of my coaches HERE. top
