Interview with Maryland's oldest competing gymnast - 42-year-old Level 9, Tina Wise of First Class
Inspirational interview with Tina Wise, Maryland's oldest competing gymnast. Tina, a former elite, was injured and had to stop gymnastics at age 14. She returned to the sport in her late 20s. Today at 42 - two young kids, an ACL surgery, and many years later - Tina continues to compete in Maryland as part of First Class' Level 9 team, against kids more than half her age. Hear about Tina's very much in-progress journey through gymnastics, how she learned brand new skills when she made her comeback, how she deals with injuries and other setbacks, her training schedule, and what keeps her going decades after most gymnasts have long since retired their grips.

Interview with 86-year-old gymnast, Johanna Quaas!
2011, August - Freyburg /Unstrut (Germany) Interview with the multi-times German Senior Champion of artistic gymnastics, the 86-years old Johanna Quaas from Halle (Saxony-Anhalt), at the 89th Jahnturnfest in the Jahn City of Freyburg. (c) gymmedia Translation, thanks to Gymnastike user, Nika! Q: If there were World Championships or European Championships, you would be a candidate for a title, I would say. Is that the case? J.Q.: I would love to compete with others and I always regretted that there are not even European Championships, not to mention Worlds for seniors (=elderly). In every other sport that is the case just not in gymnastics. Q: In the world of gymnastics you have been known for a long time. For those who don't know this: you started quite early. In the fifties you were one of Eastern Germany's top gymnasts. J.Q.: No, not really, I just was "Oberstufe" (pretty high level in there system but not quite elite). But I started out playing handball until 1954, and there we were Eastern German Champion in 1954, with the (she names a club that I can't really understand the name). Q: But in gymnastics in Halle... J.Q.: Along the way a started doing gymnastics, that was allowed then. Then I did actively gymnastics until 32 or 33. Also at "Wissenschaft Halle" (another club), back then. But then I restarted in 1956. Q: A last word to Quaas and Freyburg. How does this match together? For ever, right? J.Q.: Yes, forever, since I restarted gymnastics I was back here every here. And I love it, because one can do gymnastics outdoors, and as always the weather is beautiful. Q: Yes, and the gymnasts deserve that. J.Q.: Yes. Q: Thank you very much, all the best, and where do we see you again? J.Q.: The next one is "Schnepfenthal", I like going there, too. That's in the region of GutsMuth (an 18th century pioneer in gymnastics) and also Friesen worked there (early 19th century pedagogue). And I always like it there, too. Also senior championships. But from the championships I want slowly to retire, I think that was long enough now.

Amy's Gymnastics September 2010
These are some training clips from my adult gymnastics class at Texas Dreams Gymnastics in Coppell, Texas. I did gym as a kid for about 7 years for fun, and started gymnastics again in January of 2010. We have class once a week for about an hour to hour and a half and can work on whatever we like. The other girl Jennifer in the video, she and I switch off weeks doing two rotations each week, so one week we'll do vault and bars, then beam and floor the next week, since we have limited time in the gym. We are trying to get more hours in the gym starting soon! I hope you like the video! Please don't be critical, I'm just learning gymnastics again for fun :) If you live in the Dallas area and want to join our class, they offer a free trial class, so just call the gym and schedule one! Our class is Monday nights from 8-9 pm, we'd love to have you!
