—Guest Nicola Skipp (gymnast, level4 11 years )


When you're feeling down because your body hurts When your hands are torn and your muscles ache When the beam's so high and you feel you'll fall When you feel you can't and want to stop it all When the spring floor feels like concrete When you feel you're spent and can't compete And the bars, they seem so wide apart And vaulting now is not in your heart When all of this makes you feel like the pits It's time to relax and think a bit Of the hours and hours of hard work put in It's time to collect the dividend You know why you're here, what it's all about You know there's no time at all for self-doubt So get up, with both your body and your mind And keep it going because you're going to find... YOU CAN...you can do it with a little more grit
