Training

Answered By Mick Grant & John Molvar

Question

Hi, My daughter is almost 10 years old and going to gymnastics classes for 6 years. Coaches told me that she has an ability for sprinting. Last year we started t&f and last June she ran 100m in 15.04 and 60 m 9.82. She was born in April 1999 and she is 1.29 m tall now. Can gymnastics and T&F go together? She is also good in gymnastics(artistic). What must we do according to you? Thanks Alev

Answer

Mary Lou Retton did both when she was young. Let your daughter try lots of sports and she will discover what she loves.
