Star Gymnast in the Making

Ansyn Bracken is just 12 and has already brought eight gold medals and many other silvers and
bronzes home. This budding gymnast from Bartonville is now a level 7 floor state champion who
recently won gold in the USA Gymnastics Texas State Championships.
“I didn’t think of the result while I was performing. When I heard my name as the winner, I was
excited,” she shared.
“I’m thankful to have parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles, and friends that support me during
training and competitions. I also have amazing coaches that believe in me and are dedicated to
helping me improve and stay healthy. My coaches have high standards and push me to do
better continuously, even when I don’t think I can. I have a huge support group; it feels great!”
The Grapevine Colleyville ISD student enjoys doing gymnastics and practices 28 hours per
week along with her studies. Gymnastics is her passion; she is hard-working and confident.
Ansyn was just three when she started the sport, and she’s been competing for four years now.
“I want to be a successful collegiate gymnast and maybe even go elite,” she said.
The Denton Gymnastics Academy student tried numerous sports and activities from a very early
age. She played soccer, basketball, swimming, dance, and gymnastics, and gymnastics was by
far her favorite as she found there’s always something new and exciting to learn. “After trying
her first gymnastics class, she asked me if we could come back every day,” her mom Jenny

Besides being a charismatic and confident gymnast, Ansyn is humble and empathetic at heart.
Gymnastics has helped her evolve as a better person. “It’s essential that Ansyn understands
how to be respectful while celebrating her personal achievements while also being supportive of
her teammates and being a good friend, her mom said.
