Agreed, tumbling is hard on the body. Some of our kids were struggling with recovering from or having current broken backs, fingers, ankles, post surgeries, brain surgeries, mental blocks, etc. Most of the kids had never been to worlds some level 3s and 4s, r5s, older athletes who no longer tumble like they used to when in their prime etc. The only thing I know about Lady Lux is a lot of them came from their original spotlight 4.2 team and did not possess world tumbling but natural progression from level 4 to level 5 stunts. I dont know how many were first time worlds kids but they were amazing. There was one team at worlds who started as a 4.2 and switched up to level 5 to try to go to worlds. I thought that was awesome. I dont really know the makeup of most of the teams last season and none this season lol. Congrats on your kiddos globe. Mine also globed with a bronze medal her first (and last) worlds trip. It was truly amazing for her and her team to hit zero at worlds and come home with a globe. I will be so excited to see all the teams this year and root them all on.
