She may have begun gymnastics just six years ago, but Charlotte Booth of Brandy Johnson’s Gymnastics is already climbing her way to the top. At the KPAC Cup National Elite Qualifier in March of this year, Charlotte earned her Hopes 12-13 qualifying score. Then, two months later at Developmental Camp, she earned her junior elite qualifying score, qualifying to the American and U.S. Classic.
As mentioned above, Charlotte only began gymnastics in 2013. Soon after beginning the sport, Charlotte’s coaches noticed something special in her, and after competing level 4 and 5, she skipped levels 6 and 7 and began competing level 8 the next season. In 2018, Charlotte competed her first season of level 10 and made it all the way to the JO National Championships where she earned a bronze medal on floor. Charlotte competed level 10 during the 2019 season as well, but finished her level 10 season at the Florida State Championships where she won the vault, floor, and all around titles. Even though she qualified, Charlotte did not go on to compete at the Region 8 Championships in order to focus on elite.
Charlotte’s main goal for the 2019 season was to qualify junior elite, but now after accomplishing that goal, she is looking forward to gaining experience at classics and working new upgrades. Charlotte is solid on all four events and has a spunky floor routine, but Charlotte believes she stands out on vault as she performed a Yurchenko 1.5 twist.
In the future, Charlotte hopes to earn a spot on the U.S. National Team and represent Team USA on international assignments.Tags: Charlotte Booth, elite gymnastics
