Life in a Leo Episode 14: Interview with some UC Davis Alumni

This is a very special episode. It's the first time I interviewed a group of people. In addition, these were three of my teammates at UC Davis. Meghan was two years ahead of me and Flora and Lynn was a year younger. We discuss our growth in the sport throughout our time in college, the camaraderie of our team and how we never fully got closer even after we graduated. We also discuss some of our most memorable moments and leotards. It was so fun talking to these ladies and learning more about how gymnastics has impacted and influenced their lives. I hope you enjoy it!

 

Here are some of the career highlights of each of the three gymnasts I interviewed:

Flora is a 9 time All American, USAG Collegiate Nationals AA, 2001, MPSF Gymnast of the week and NCAA Regional Qualifier. In addition, Flora shares the UC Davis school record for Vault and Floor.

Lynn is a 3 time All American, 2003 USAG Collegiate Nationals Vault Champion, NCAA Regional qualifier, and part of the 39.00 and over AA group. After graduating from UC Davis, Lynn has worked as a Professor, performed in Cirque du Soleil Ka, and an Environmental Scientist. 

Meghan was part of the 1999 USAG Collegiate Nationals Championship team. Since graduating, Meghan has a Masters in Education from Stanford University and has taught High School Science and Chemistry.

Thank you so much to everyone that answered my question on Instagram regarding topics you want to hear on the show. This week I explore a topic suggested by @abriannagallo on time management. 
I talk about what I did when I was still a gymnast, some of the tools I use now as an adult, and ways to plan your time. Check out monday.com/ if you want to learn more about one of the tools I live by these days. And remember, we are all human and mistakes happen. We can't always plan our time perfectly, so be kind to yourself and learn what works for you!
Good luck to everyone competing this weekend. Hope you have a great meet! And good luck to Team USA at World Championships. Can't wait to watch all the amazing athletes in Doha.

This was so much fun. I got to interview one of my new co-workers who grew up doing gymnastics in France! It was great to learn a little bit about what that was like, her favorite event, her disgusting competition leotard, and some great advice for young gymnasts. 
It was a little challenging at times with the language barrier, but we figured it out. Let us know what you think? Have you ever done gymnastics in a different country? What was it like and what did you learn? Did you or are you growing up outside of the USA? How is gymnastics different? Let us know -Rebecca@leotard.com. We hope to hear from you!
Everyone competing this weekend, good luck, stay focused, have fun and don't forget to point your toes! Thanks for listening!!
