Class of 2023
Zora is a skilled gymnast with finesse and strength who is working hard to make her mark as a top athlete in gymnastics. Zora began competing on Level 3 at the young age of 5 in her hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. Zora advanced quickly through the compulsory levels, and by age 7 moved into the optional levels, where she briefly trained under her gym's TOPS/HOPES program, polishing her technique through the guidance of top coaches and professionals in the gymnastics world.
In 2018, Zora and family moved to Orlando, Fl. where she began training with Orlando Metro Gymnastics under Head Coach, Jeff Wood. In a short time, she climbed to the top 100 among Level 9 gymnasts, averaging a 37.00 AA in the 2018-19 season. Zora placed 2nd at Florida State Meet, and after a solid performance at her regional competition, she qualified for the 2019 Level 9 Eastern Championships, where she took 4th place. Her scores contributed to the Region 8 team's 1st place win in the Jr 6 age division; a perfect ending to her Level 9 season.
Zora is an A/B honor student. She has three older brothers and a loving yorkie, named Neo.
Zora is currently training 25-30 hrs per week on level 10 with a goal of competing at the collegiate level.
