No matter what anyone says, you’re never ready to say goodbye to a part of your life that made you into the person you are today. To my family, I have no words but thank you! Thank you for standing by my side every step of the way. Thank You for allowing me to chase my dreams and continue what I love for the past 20 years. What a journey it has been! To my past and present gymdogs, I am beyond grateful to call you my family forever♥️ To my 2020 sisters, thank you for pushing me to be the best version of myself each and every day. I am incredibly proud of your fight and determination this year. Everything you need to reach your goals is inside you! Always remember you are Stronger Together! I love you guys so much! Lastly, Thank You Dawg Nation for showing unconditional love and support since the first day I walked into Stegeman! It has been nothing but an absolute honor to wear the Georgia G for the last 4 years. To every little girl out there, I believe in you! Keep your chin up and keep pushing cause anything is possible if you put your heart and soul into it. I promise, I’m living proof! Forever and Always, GO DAWGS!?♥️?

Completely heartbroken and devastated with the circumstances… To the sport of gymnastics…. what a ride it has been. Starting out as a little girl with huge dreams….to all the hard practices, 6am workouts, the injuries, the surgeries, the sacrifices, the tears, blood, sweat…… the great practices, the laughs, the friendships, the competitions, the amazing experiences, the CHAMPIONSHIPS….. and everything in between…… i would not change it for the WORLD, and would do it all again if i could. this sport has taught me so many incredible lessons that i will take with me for the rest of my life. I am going to miss the GRIND, the continuous drive to become the best athlete I can be & always reaching for my goals. It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that i will never have the opportunity to compete for OU again with my team….. but knowing i poured my heart & soul into this sport my whole entire career, and ended on a positive note eases my mind knowing i gave it EVERYTHING i had. Every ounce of my being. To all continuing athletes…. remember to enjoy the journey & soak up EVERY moment…….enjoy the tough workouts, the struggle, the success & failures…. you never know when it will be your last day doing the sport you LOVE. Being able to represent OKLAHOMA has been a dream, and I will forever bleed crimson and cream…. BOOMER SOONER. i love you all and cannot thank everyone for the endless support throughout my gymnastics career. I can’t thank everyone enough who helped me throughout my journey. love always, – Swags ??❤️

Bonjour à tous, je tenais à faire ce post pour vous faire un point sur notre situation. Comme vous avez pu le constater à travers les différents communiqués/informations qui circulent, les compétitions nationales sont toutes suspendues ou annulées. Idem au niveau international, la quasi-totalité des tournois ont été reportés. Au vu de la situation, L’insep a pris la décision de fermer ses portes pendant 15 jours (minimum) par mesures de précaution. Même si nous sommes en pleine année olympique avec beaucoup d’enjeux, la santé passe avant tout et nous ne pouvons nous permettre de prendre le moindre risque. Je vous tiendrais informer de l’évolution de la situation. Pour terminer, J’adresse une pensée particulière à tou(te)s les gymnastes, de tous niveaux, qui sont touchés par ces mesures et qui ne peuvent malheureusement pas s’entraîner. Profitez de ce temps pour vous reposer, soigner les petits bobos, et surtout pour faire attention à vous et à vos proches ??. #lecoqsportif #family #sport #gymnastics #olympicsgames #santé #covid_19 À bientôt, Marine ♥️
