Little gymnast wins top spot in state competition

fp-gymnast1

Rockford’s Anna Crysler is just eight years old, but an old hand at bringing home the gold.

On May 17 Anna competed in the state gymnastic meet in Kalamazoo. The young gymnast ended up winning the State Championship All-Around Gold medal with a score of 37.325.

She also won gold on uneven bars, silver on vault and bronze on floor exercise. Her 2008-09 season was also impressive, with 11 All-Around gold medals out of 12 meets for ages nine and under and brought in 23 gold medals in individual events. She trains four days a week since starting a recreational gymnastic class  at age five.
