A bit hard to see, but there are black swooshes on there...
Made for Tink to wear at her first "bounce up" this Friday - she started trampoline this term, just recreation level at this stage and bounce ups are when the kids show the routines they've learned and earn levels ribbons. She is really looking forward to it.
It was ZM4 last weekend; the last competition before Nationals, the last chance to get any upgrades out on the floor and work the kinks out - so to speak.
Tamsin had upgrades, a better end sequence and new leotard to test out.
Isn't it fabulous?? Clare made it, and it looked great on the floor, getting lots of comments.
Tink also improved her season PB to 16.7 and made finals for the first time - hers is a large and very tough category.
Nationals is now only 3 weeks away... GO TINK!!!
PS: Nationals is in Auckland this year; do come watch if you can :)
The little niece of one of the Argos gymnasts is starting rhythmic now she's five, so naturally she needed a leo made just for her, in her favourite colours...
I'll be handing this one over on Friday, when Tink and I drive down to Tauranga for the Midlands Rhythmic Champs this weekend. Feedback on the Facebook post suggests she'll need to be bribed to change out of it!
While the white&gold upgraded aerobics leo used for hoop at the first comp looked nice, Tink had retaped her hoop for this season in purple with gold accents, meaning purple needed to be on the leotard somewhere. Easiest way to achieve that? Make a new one, of course!
My lovely neighbour and partner in leotard crime, Clare, was given an all singing all dancing camera for Christmas so that she could take photos of her leotards in action at comps.
She had several on show at this weekend's Xtreme RG comp and she got some shots of Tink in action for me.
