Hollie Marissa Johnson was born on April 28, 2003 in Lumberton, NC to Vernon and Tara Johnson. She has a sister, Kyleigh and a Maltese named Sophie. Currently, Hollie is an honor student at A Beka Academy and she will graduate from high school in 2021. When Hollie has time outside of gymnastics and school, she enjoys riding 4-wheelers and hunting.
As a toddler, Hollie was always flipping, climbing and jumping. Her parents decided to enroll her into gymnastics so that she would have a safe place to burn off all of that extra energy. The following year, Hollie was asked to join the competitive team and has been competing ever since. At the beginning of her gymnastics career, she trained at Lumberton Gymnastics Academy in Lumberton, NC under coaches Kenan Lundy and Rachel Sprouse.
As a level 7 gymnast in 2012, Hollie finished ninth in the all-around with a 37.600 and fifth on uneven bars at the State Championships. She moved up to level 8 for the 2013 season where she placed in the top ten in the all-around. She qualified to the Region 8 Championships, finishing fourth in the all-around with a 37.475, second on uneven bars and third on floor exercise.
In the summer of 2013, Hollie moved away from home and began training at Everest Gymnastics in Huntersville, NC. In 2014 as a level 9 gymnast, Hollie placed fourth in the all-around with a 36.725, second on floor exercise and third on balance beam at the State Championships. At the Region 8 Championships, she finished ninth in the all-around, third on balance beam and seventh on floor exercise. She narrowly missed qualifying to the Eastern Nationals.
In 2015, Hollie moved back home and began the season with the Ocean Flippers of Gym and More as a level 10 gymnast. She placed sixth in the all-around, fourth on floor exercise and fifth on vault at the State Championships. She qualified and competed at the Region 8 Championships. In 2016, Hollie finished fifth in the all-around with a 37.250 and fifth on vault at the State Championships. She qualified to the Region 8 Championships, finishing third on floor exercise with a 9.500.
In 2017, Hollie had a great season where she placed first in the all-around at the Alamo Classic, Charleston Cup and Nashville Nights Invitational. Prior to the State Championships, she torn her ACL. She had a surgery on April 6th and now is in recovery process.
Currently, Hollie is preparing for the 2018 season as a level 10 gymnast. She trains 24 hours per week at Sonshine Gymnastics in Holly Springs, NC under coaches Heidi and Milan Stanovich. Hollie is working hard to qualify to the Junior Olympic Nationals and make the Junior Olympic National Team. Her long-term goal is to obtain a Division 1 college scholarship.
