Olympic Team is Named | San Jose

Jumptwist just left the SAP Center where the Olympic Trials in San Jose California was held. The energy in the crowd was absolutely amazing and the dismounts off of bars were practically perfect.

Team Jumptwist @ P&G’s

Being at the 2015 P&G Championships was such an amazing experience. Although Team Jumptwist only made it to Senior Day 1, seeing these girls compete live was awesome. As a retired gymnast and now coach I found myself viewing the competition differently then ever before. The olympics are next year! Who has what it takes to bring home the gold for the USA once again?!
