Most Inspirational Gymnasts 2022
All of the awards at the HGA Annual Awards Night are voted on by our coaching team, except for one, the Most Inspirational Gymnast Award. The Most Inspirational Gymnast is voted on by our competitive gymnasts from level 3 up. Our gymnasts are asked to fill out a nomination form for a fellow competitive gymnast from any class that has inspired them throughout the year with their training ethic, good attitude, and team support, or for any positive, inspiring impact they have made on their fellow athletes or HGA as a whole.
All nominations are anonymous and the winner is the athlete who receives the most votes from their peers.
This year a massive 19 athletes were nominated. It makes us so proud that so many of our athletes are providing such a positive team environment for our gymnasts and we would like to take this opportunity to share with you some of the incredible things our gymnasts had to say about their teammates.
