Tumbling Heated Up in Chilly Belvidere

It was cold but the tumbling was still hot at the tumbling competition recently attended by Gem City. The tumbling team traveled to Belvidere, Illinois, this weekend and had great results!

Gem City’s tumbling team coaches are Zeke Cernea, Laci Heller, and Anne Nash. Keep scrolling to read the individual results. You can read more about our tumbling program here.

For those that may be unfamiliar with power tumbling, it is a sport where athletes propel themselves forward down an elevated runway while executing a series of acrobatic skills. (Think flips!) Each tumbler completes two passes, or series of skills. Depending on the level, each pass contains either five or eight skills.
