NPR Darling Hill interview

July 22, 2008

Darling Hill’s powerful jumps and tumbles made her a favorite at the U.S. Olympic gymnastics trials.

But shoulder injuries and a sprained ankle dashed her hopes of going to Beijing to compete this year.

Kim Bonos, owner and head coach of Will-Moore gymnastics, mentions that Dar’s grandmother and her would get on Dar’s case if things weren’t going right.  

Dar feels she has not reached her peak yet.  She says loves when the audience gets into her routines.  Kim Bonos loves excellent gymnastics and is driven by the beauty of the sport.  

Check out Will-Moor’s website.  They have videos of their gymnasts from 2007 Level 10 JO Nats.  Rebecca Best won first AA, 3rd on Bars, and first on Vault, Beam, and floor for her age group.

Darling Hill?  I thought the reporter had made a stupid mistake when I first started reading this story.  Apparently not.
