Double Dose gymnastics started its season in October and competed throughout the state of Georgia in the months since then. Most recently, the gymnasts earned a spot in the state championships in Acworth last month and brought home numerous medals.
Competing at state were Kairi Howell, Halle Hatcher, Natalya Sannicolas, Chanlee Youmans, Taliyah Crews, Lydia Garnto, Addison Canady, Smith Willoughby, Alyssa Carmona, and Morgan Nie.
Five of those athletes—Howell, Hatcher, Canady, Nie, and Willoughby—qualified for the AAU National Championships as well. Nationals will be held in Orlando, Florida.
Competitive gymnastics takes hard work and long hours in the gym. The sport also calls for dedication and commitment from the competitors, their families, their coaches, and the staff. Congratulations on a great season thus far and bring home the gold!
