I am Elizabeth Gantner and I am 15 years old from Indianapolis, Indiana. I train at JPAC with my coaches, Dave Marus and Jaycie Phelps and I will be a first year Senior Elite in 2020. In 2019, I qualified junior Elite at the Biles Invitational placing second All Around and first on bars. I participated in Developmental camp at Flip Fest and the Junior Worlds Trials at EVO in Florida and then the American and US Classic. In 2018, I qualified to Level 10 JO Nationals where I placed on bars. I qualified Junior Elite at the Auburn Elite Qualifier placing first All Around and first on bars and beam. After an amazing level 8 season in 2016 which ended with 5 gold medals at the Region 5 championships, my coaches and I decided I would compete level 10 and try to qualify Hopes in 2017. Early in the year, I competed one meet at level 9 and achieved my elite compulsory score before competing my first level 10 meet at Metroplex in Texas. In February, I made my Hopes Optional score at the Brestyans Qualifier in Las Vegas. In my second ever level 10 all around meet in Orlando, I went 4 for 4 and qualified to the Nastia Liukin Cup with a 38.175. I followed that with another 38+ all around at our own JPAC Midwest Showdown. I had an amazing time at the Nastia Cup even though it wasn't my best meet. I went on to States, Regionals, and JO Nationals where I was State and Regional beam champion and finished third on beam at JO Nationals. I am thankful for all of the support from my family, my coaches and my teammates and look forward to my first year as a Senior Elite!
