Gymnastics is a whole new sport for me. Hope and Kristin are trying to teach me the nuances of the sport and I am picking it up. I know enough to know a good routine from a bad one but I am still lost at some of the scoring. I now know enough to be able to ask clarifying questions!
Kristin is hard working and pushes herself very hard. She has high standards for herself. I have never heard her say she nailed a routine even when it looks like she has. All are great qualities!
I have enjoyed trying to photograph her doing her events. Taking decent sports photography requires that you anticipate what the athlete is going to do next. While I am improving I clearly have a long way to go.
