2011 ASU Maroon and Gold Competition

I’ve been working on a new routine this year and this week I got a chance to compete with the Arizona State Men’s gymnastics team in their annual pre-season inner squad meet in Chandler at Aspire. Next month is the annual Rocky Mountain Open at the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs so I wanted to give myself a chance to perform before then.

The recording is done by my 9 year old son so there are a few parts I go off camera but in general I think he did a good job filming. At the time I was focused on what I was doing but now that I watch the video it’s encouraging to hear everyone cheering for me. 🙂

Now I have a few weeks to get stronger so I can hold my strength moves and keep form in my handstands. I didn’t get a chance to ask the judges what they came up with for a start value but I believe it should be 15.2. I scored a 10.5 which is ok for the first time doing the routine. I’m shooting for above 13 at RMO next month so I have some work to do.
