Sophie is a rhythmic gymnast, but more than that she is an inspirational coach to all the young gymnasts in our club - at age 13. Competing for years, Sophie showed a passion for the sport. Working hard, she became the sole representative of our club in the regional squad. For this in itself, the younger gymnasts had a huge respect for her. However, her truly inspirational behaviour began 3 years ago when she discovered a natural gift for coaching. She now attends every session the club offers (4 times a week), coaching the recreational and novice gymnast as well as younger advanced girls. Girls always want to work with her, and she has become one of the most reliable and able coaches. This has impacted on her own training, but she always puts her coaching first. Once her dream was to compete in the Olympics, now it is to coach a future Olympian- and with Sophie guiding them there are queues of young hopefuls.
