A Quick Message from Mom

Kayla is the new Junior Female World Champion for 2nd degree patterns and the silver medalist in sparring! She had to make a tough decision and backed out of the power breaking event today since it was scheduled right before her patterns.

She sparred first and was quite sore and didn’t want to risk any more injury right before her patterns since patterns is her favorite event. She still has team sparring and team power breaking to compete in on Saturday. At least she will still get to compete in some sort of power breaking since she has really trained hard for that event as well. It was an amazing day for her and she will write another blog tomorrow but right now she is sound asleep!!!!   I know she will want to give you all the details herself and post some pictures.

I can’t tell you how proud I felt watching my little girl standing on the podium hearing the national anthem. I just might have shed a tear or two 🙂   Wish you were all here!
