Short Bio

Hi, I'm Carley. I started gymnastics when I was two years old. When I am not in the gym or studying for school, I like to hang out with my friends and family. I also like to do crafts and watch Netflix. Some of my gymnastics accomplishments are placing first in the all around, first on beam and second on bars at Western Nationals as a Level 9. My first year at Level 10, I was second on bars and fourth on beam at Regionals and qualified for Nationals. Last year at Level 10, I was first on beam at State and qualified for Regionals but I tore my calf muscle (my first ever injury) so my season was cut short. I have worked hard over the summer. I'm excited for this season to start!

Biography:

Clara Wallace, who is now thirteen years old, has been doing gymnastics ever since she was five. She is currently a Level 10 gymnast, but she is working towards Junior Elite; she qualified for and competed in the 2018 Hopes Championships in Columbus, Ohio. She has also been to the Invite Olympic Development Camp six times. Although she has an eventual goal of making the USA National Team, her ultimate goal in gymnastics is to glorify God! Outside of gymnastics, Clara is interested in music. She and her sister Raleigh both take piano and voice lessons, and when they were younger, they studied violin and dance. Clara was blessed with a great sense of humor and a love for critical thinking and politics. She and her family have found a community in their Torah study class, where they study the Bible from a Messianic perspective. Clara plans to become an electrical engineer and is working on her drawing skills.
