CAN YOU SHARE WITH US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR JOURNEY AND HOW YOU GOT TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
Friday, February 24, 2017, Madison was at a tumble clinic at her gym with the one and only tumble doctor (Alvin Davis). It was her first season of cheer and she was motivated as ever to get her back handspring. The night was going great until the last 5 minutes of the clinic. Out of the blue you heard a scream and she was coming up from the floor holding her arm. We knew right away it was broken but didn’t know how bad. We went to the ER and found out both her ulna and radius were broken. Thankfully the doctors were great and was able to snap her arm back into place and no surgery was needed!
The NEXT day she was back in the SAME tumble clinic to come watch. She told Alvin she’d be back and to watch out for her. For the rest of the season she went to every. single. practice and competition. She became Coach Madison. She worked out and stretched as much as possible, not letting a broken arm stop her.
April 13th she got her cast off and May 6th she was back on the mat competing in the last competition of the season.
She had to work and build up ALL her strength again. She worked day and night to get even better than she was before she broke her arm.
She had to work and build up ALL her strength again. She worked day and night to get even better than she was before she broke her arm. She became a member of the Residents program with the Tumble Doctor. 4 hours of practice for 10 weeks straight. Not once did she say she couldn’t do something.
October 21st 2017 She accomplished her first goal! She built up enough strength and technique to do her back handspring on the tumble track all by herself. Some may see it as small victories but for her situation it was HUGE! Next was the floor! She continued to work day in and day out to keep building up the muscle needed to keep her tumbling moving forward!
February 3rd and 4th 2018 she finally had the technique and strength to throw her handsprings (standing and running) on the floor. That day was one of the best days of her life!
Now she continues to work on building strength so she can perfect her handsprings and work on the next skills to come her way!
