Rose Gatins got her start in gymnastics at the age of five after watching and being inspired by the 2012 Olympic Games just before turning three. After scaring her parents by diving off the couch, Rose's parents decided to enroll her in mommy and me classes and eventually recreational classes. Rose took to the sport right away and kept wanting to train more hours. At the age of five, Rose began training at Paramount Elite Gymnastics where she joined the gym's pre-team and began training TOPs at the age of six.
Rose began competing level three at the age of six in 2016. At her first meet, just two months after turning six, Rose won the bars, beam, floor, and all around titles. Rose finished up her first season of competitive gymnastics at the SoCal North State Championships where she took fifth on beam and sixth all around. During the summer of 2017, Rose participated in TOPs Testing and went on to make the TOPs National Diamond Team.
During the 2017 fall season, Rose competed another season of level 3 and began her season at the Out of This World Invite where she won the floor title and brought home silver medals on vault, beam, and in the all around. Rose had a fantastic meet at the SoCal 3rd Prelim one month later and flew high to score a perfect 10.00 on vault and win the all around with a 38.900. Rose closed her level 3 season with a fantastic performance at the SoCal North State Championships, winning all four events and the all around title with a huge 39.025.
In 2018, Rose competed just two meets of level 4. Rose competed her first level 4 meet at the Brestyan's Las Vegas Invitational and came home with a win on beam and second place finishes on bars, floor, and in the all around. During the summer of 2018, Rose participated in another year of TOPs Testing. From state testing, Rose qualified to National Testing and from National Testing, finished in the top 45 and made the TOPs National A Team.
Rose began her optional career in 2019 as a level 6 at the Lady Luck Invitational where she finished third on vault. Rose continued to improve throughout the season and took fourth on vault at the SoCal State Championships and qualified to the Region 1 Championships. Regionals was Rose's best meet of her season as she won the vault title, took third on beam, and finished fourth all around.
Currently, Rose trains 25 hours under coaches Sarah Korngold, Liang Zhou, Kevin Bhark, and Melissa Metcalf at Paramount Elite Gymnastics. Rose's goal for the 2020 season is to perfect her technique and skills to qualify Hopes. In the future, Rose hopes to represent Team USA at the 2028 Olympics while pursuing astrophysics and maybe someday to a cartwheel on Mars.
