My Biography

**THE BEGINNING:** Coming "late" to the sport of gymnastics in April 2017, Benjamin (then almost 9) took to the sport immediately, earning a brief stint on Liberty Gymnastics' JO Level 4 Team in Concord, CA. During the 2017-18 JO Season, Benjamin steadily improved while he competed as a JO Level 5, and he placed 4th in his age group at the NorCal State Championships in March 2018. Benjamin was also honored to be named the Alternate to the NorCal All Star Team (Ages 7-9) that went to Regionals in Arizona. Soon thereafter, the Liberty Gymnastics Men's Program Director (Chris Nagy) promoted Benjamin to Level 6. By July 2018, Benjamin was training exclusively with the Liberty Gymnastics Optionals Team (JO Levels 8-10), and he was training with an eye toward competing in the 2018 Future Stars Program. Thanks to Benjamin’s natural talent, lots of hard work, fabulous coaching, and outstanding support from the Liberty Gymnastics family, Benjamin's improving skills and proficiency earned him a spot on the Liberty Gymnastics JO Level 7 Team in August 2018. Benjamin then made it all the way to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado for the National Future Stars Testing at the end of 2018 (for 10 year olds), where his dreams of one day becoming an Olympian were ignited.
