Nuys Senior Olympics
| While America's most elite gymnasts
were performing their routines in the Land Down Under at the Sydney 2000
Olympics, a group of older but equally dedicated gymnasts were competing
in Van Nuys, California, at the Senior Olympics. This competition,
held every year at the end of September, attracts competitors of all
ages from throughout the Southern California region. On September
24 of this year, over 20 participants gathered at the L.A. Valley
College gym to test their skills in artistic gymnastics and in the rope
climb. Representing our class at this competition were three
gymnasts who have already tested themselves in competition this year in
San Diego, Camarillo and Aliso Viejo: Masako Kardos, Daneen Leidig,
and Ross Shaw. All three performed well, with Daneen obtaining the
highest score in the balance beam. Each captured gold medals in
their respective events and in their age divisions.
Congratulations to all!
It is rewarding to see so many in the middle of their lives dedicating
time to improve their skills base. Our gymnastics class affords
individuals the time and attention they need to set goals and attain
desired skills. Through consistent practice and participation in
competitions, we can all derive healthier bodies and internal mental and
emotional well-being. Our facility in Aliso Viejo is a great
facility where one can learn in a safe environment. In addition,
our classes are geared towards making learning gymnastics fun and
