Kaytlin Kwong, a junior at Malden High School, is a first-year member of the gymnastics team. Although she was not on the MHS team prior to this year, Kwong is an experienced veteran in the sports, having been done gymnastics for nine years.
Kwong took a year off gymnastics to focus off her studies and her classes. Kwong was aware that “[MHS] had a team, but [she] didn’t have time before, so [she] joined this year.” Kwong enjoys how the sport is mostly an individual and team sport at the same time. She also likes how they have to use teamwork to “get the job done” and get all of their scores.
Kwong has found the experience really different just because she has never been on a high school team before. Kwong stated that she has “found the team very sweet, everyone seems to have really good chemistry.” Kwong does all of the events during the meets which are vault, bars, beam, and floor. She thinks that her strengths as a gymnast is that she is able to cheer on her team members and co-operation. What Kwong thinks she needs to improve on is not being so hard on herself and allowing herself to make mistakes.
All in all, Kwong has really enjoyed her gymnastic season, and really enjoys how well the team is able to work together.
