We are more than pretty.
We are Strong!
We are more than the dolled-up gymnasts you see at competitions.
We are sweaty with messy hair and ripped hands.
We are more than our perfectly polished skills.
We are hours spent in a chalk filled gym constantly falling and getting back up again.
We are more than a fancy leap or twirl.
We are tumbles, flips and falls.
We are more than a good looking routine.
We are the result of years of hard work and dedication to finesse those 3 minutes.
We are more than just girls doing a girly sport.
We are dedicated female athletes doing the toughest sport in the world!
And we flippin' LOVE it!!
