Anonymous said: How many contests did you win and did you reach good places?
Oh my, I don’t remember how many contest I won! Hahaha I won several provincial and regional championship a part form other minor competitions, I placed 2nd at nationals a couple times and won them once:)

Here we are again with the City of Jesolo Trophy, the most important international competition held in Italy. The all around and the junior competition will be on Saturday, March 22nd, while the event finals will be on Sunday, March 23rd.
The countries involved this year are Australia, Japan, Romania, USA and of course Italy.
We’ve seen how from 2010 the USA completely dominated the competition, always winning gold with just three exceptions: junior team in 2010 and 2013 and the junior all around in 2010. This of course makes the United States the favorite and so the team to beat.
Selections are currently being made at a camp to which the following senior gymnasts were invited:
Francesca De Agostini
Vanessa Ferrari (who already said she won’t attend the meet)
Six seniors and six juniors will make the team for each country, while the remaining athletes will be competing in a mixed team and in the individual all around.
This year I will not be personally at the meet, since I am currently on an exchange program in the USA, however gymchalk.tumblr.com will still be at the competition: my loyal friend Chiara (who owns an awesome camera) already booked her tickets and will shoot tons of photos and record videos that will be published here as soon as possible.
Reminder: this year for the first time, the Italian Gymnastics Federation announced that the competition will be streamed live on the internet and available worldwide! Stay tuned, I will post the link as soon as possible :)
I will update the participants list as soon as the Italian selection will be done.
Have a nice day and enjoy the gymternet :)
