Certainly, her coaches had a lot to do with her success. They gave her practical experience needed for proper training and for creativity she displays in her favored events. Good gymnastics schools, dedication to her work, and certainly allure of championships kept her motivated, and as she won title after title, she improved with help of internationally renowned teams of gymnasts. And, too, love of sport itself inspired by her coaches and her mentors aided her to point where she is today…but to attribute all of her success to work of these individuals would be erroneous without, of course, mentioning her parents.
Her mother, Natalie, and her father, Ricky, played perhaps most important role in any young person’s life. They gave her encouragement; they were there when she needed them. This goes doubly for Miss Patterson, for they also showed confidence and interest in her gymnastics endeavors--in fact, by enrolling her in Gymnastics Elite, they gave her a good running start for motivation. It was with their help, too, that she got through some of most difficult times of her career thus far. An injury to her elbow kept her out of several national and international championships; it was with her parents’ support that she was rehabilitated, and has now risen to become an Olympic star.
You, as a parent of a gymnast, can certainly take this to heart. You don’t have to be particularly well off to give your gymnast confidence they need to become best. In fact, all you have to do is encourage your child; if they show interest in sport, let them participate. If they do well, encourage them further.
They’re already champions.
