Starting with Guam’s highest skill level gymnast, Aisha Tangi (level 8), competed in 2 different competitions, “Gymnastics in Paradise Meet” in Honolulu on Jan. 11th, and also the “Aloha Gymfest Meet” in Kailua, Hawaii on Jan. 17th. Both competitions she placed 2nd All-Around in her Level 8 age group division.

Aisha Tangi’s “Aloha Gymfest” scores were 2nd All-Around 36.275, (2nd Vault 9.025, 4th Bars 8.575, 2nd Beam 9.475, 4th Floor 9.20).

Aisha Tangi is a senior at Harvest Christian Academy and this was her last year competing for Guam before she leaves for college in the states. Aisha will always be known for Guam’s first gymnast to compete abroad in an International meet back in the year of 2011 when she went solo to Hawaii.

Today, multiple gymnast go every year abroad to compete for Guam along with Aisha. Aisha has advanced every year competing in a higher level then the year before. Some of her highest skills she performed in this meet was the Tsukahara on the Vault, and on the Uneven Bars she performed a “Level 8” release move, called the “Straddle Back”.

This move is done by releasing your grip from the high bar and flying over the low bar and catching it with a straddle kip-up and then finishing the rest of your routine without stopping! Aisha has placed Guam in the “competition world of gymnastics” and her teammates and coaches will miss her very much.

Isabella Kebreau (10yrs.) 1st All-Around 37.550 (1st Vault 8.90, 1st Bars 9.70, 1st Beam 9.650, 1st Floor 9.30).
