Ebony Placed 4th All Around At The National Gymnastic
April 28, 2004-Silver Spring, MD-Ebony Walters
is done for the year and she went out leaving the crowd of onlookers and Olympic
scouts in awe. Ebony's last meet of the year was at the National Gymnastic
Championship in Virginia Beach last weekend where she competed against
226 kids from 125 cities from all over the United States. The little angel
warrior knew she was up against some of the best kids in country all of
whom are seeking to make their dream of possible participating in the
Olympics come true. A good performance from Ebony would place her one level closer
to that dream.
It was all nerve wrecking as the competition time
drew closer. Most athletes no matter how experienced they are would be
going through some real emotional moments just before the big game, but the
little warrior was calm as ever as though it was just routine for her.
Very shy and very serious about her work she warmed up and got herself loose
hoping to leave the year with bang performance. The result for such hard
work and dedication was more than magnificent. Her gracefull performance
was more than we could ask for.
The results:Ebony won "National Champion" with a
a 9.525 score on bars, 9.100 on beam, 9.00 on vault and 9.325 on
floor. Overall, Ebony was placed 4th all around. A giant step.
Congratulation Ebony and we see you next year!
