She's wonderful. Glad she came to Utah.


Kristina has been a great gymnast to watch for 4 years! No matter what she does, a stuck landing or even a fall, she smiles when she does. It has been so fun to watch a happy gymnast! We will all miss Kristina next year, but we hope she can give us the championship we have waited for, for so long, before she goes!

One more thing.

Kristina is a great gymnast and her sunny attitude is a large part of her charm...but the fact that the young lady is flat-out gorgeous doesn't hurt with the male fans either...

Well so I have heard, I of course am too mature to notice if a female athlete also happens to look like a Supermodel, well a short Supermodel. ;)

I had the honor of coaching Kristina from age 7 to 18. It has been amazing to watch the evolution of a pigeon toed little firecracker to the beautiful young woman athlete. She might be one of the top gymnnasts in the world right now. Its got to be great for her to be able to see the completion of the mind body connection. It will be something that she and I both with remember for the rest of our lives.
