Welcome to the Paragon Gymnastics Meets information page
“It’s not about winning or losing a competition, it’s about beating the doubt from within yourself and knowing at the end of each day you are one step closer to your goals.” Jonathan Horton
The contest lasts for moments,
though the training has taken years.
It wasn't the winning alone that was
worth the work and the tears.
The applause will be forgotten,
the prize will be misplaced,
but the long hard hours of practice
will never be a waste.
In trying to win you build a skill,
you learn that winning depends on will.
You never grow by how much you win,
you only grow by how much you put in.
So any new challenge you have just begun,
put forth your best and you have already won.
The Gymnast Prayer
Now as I warm up for this meet,
I pray my competition I can beat.
And if I fail amidst the cheers,
I pray I can hold back my tears.
And one more thing success or not,
I pray the creator of the beam be shot!
