Milana Sliusar started gymnastics at the age of five when her mom enrolled her at a recreational class at American Gymnastics Club in San Francisco, CA. Soon after beginning gymnastics, Milana was invited to join the pre-team and moved to San Mateo Gymnastics at the age of five and a half. Milana began competing level 3 at the age of six during the Fall 2014 season. At the NorCal Level 3 South State Championships, Milana placed third on beam and fourth all around. In the Spring of 2015, Milana competed one meet of level 4 where she won the beam title and placed third on vault, bars, floor, and in the all around. Following the Spring 2015 season, Milana participated in TOPs Testing and made the TOPs A Team.

Milana competed level 5 during the Fall 2015 season where she finished second on bars, and first on beam, floor, and in the all around. As a level 6 in the Winter 2016 season, Milana won the all around at her first meet, and continued her success at the NorCal State Championships where she won the beam and floor titles as well as the all around title with a 38.400. During 2016, Milana also attended all three Developmental Invite Camps.

Milana’s level 8 season began in January of 2017 at the Red Heart Invitational where she placed third on bars. Milana improved at each and every meet and finished third on vault and second on beam, floor, and in the all around at the NorCal Level 8 State Championships. Through the State Championships, Milana qualified to represent the NorCal State Team at the Region 1 Championships. At regionals, Milana placed second on bars and beam as well as the all around with a 38.625 in a tough age division.
