Abby Williams got her start in gymnastics at the age of four. After one trial class at Empire Gymnastics, her coach was impressed by her ability and strength and shortly after Abby was invited to join the team program at Empire. In 2017 at the age of six, Abby began competing as a level 2 in the spring and then level 3 in the fall. As a level 3, Abby won the bars title and finished second on floor and in the all around at the District Championships. At the Texas North State Championships, Abby won the floor title and came in second in the all around.
In 2018, Abby competed just one meet of level 4 and one meet of level 5 in order to prepare for her 2019 optional season. At her one and only level 4 meet, Abby won the floor title with a huge 9.90.
Abby began her optional career in January 2019 as a level 6 at the Alamo Classic. Here, Abby won the vault, bars, floor, and all around titles. Throughout the rest of the season, Abby finished first or second in the all around at every meet. Abby concluded her season at the Texas State Championships where she brought home gold medals on bars, beam, floor, and in the all around.
As a level 7 in 2020, Abby began her season at the Alamo Classic where she won the vault and floor titles and came in second in the all around. Abby was able to compete four meets during the 2020 season and won the all around title at two of the meets. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Abby's season was cut short as the remainder of the season was cancelled.
Currently, Abby trains 25 hours per week under coaches Beatrice Mihaila Crivineanu, Chris Brashier and Jose at Empire Gymnastics Academy. Abby's goal for the 2021 season is to score a 10.0 on bars or floor. In the future, Abby wants to become a gymnastics coach.
