Nina completed the 2015 season at the New Mexico State Championships where she competed only balance beam, finishing in second place, and uneven bars, due to injury.
Nina has had a misdiagnosed injury in her right foot for the past two years, however we are very fortunate to have found a doctor who has finally diagnosed/located the fracture after three years of only finding stress reactions. Nina will have a surgery in the beginning of July 2016 and she is very much looking forward to being able to practice all four events again. In the meantime, while unable to practice vault and floor, she has been working on bars and beam. Her tkatchevs have been improving in amplitude and she is working on perfecting numerous other bars and beam skills. As a goal oriented gymnast, Nina has never let any problems nor injuries stop her from getting new skills and reaching her goals. Through out this, she has maintained focus and enthusiasm for the sport she loves and has developed the mental strength and toughness necessary to work through adversity of injury and recovery to regain skills and learn new ones.
Nina is healing from her surgery in 2016 and is currently preparing for the 2017 season as a level 10 gymnast. She trains 22-28 hours per week at Zero Gravity Gymnastics in Las Cruces, NM.
Nina would like to be a successful level 10 gymnast, obtain a college scholarship to a Division 1/II school and pursue a degree as a medical doctor. She is a self-motivated and dedicated person who has demonstrated leadership and mental toughness in adverse situations.
