Coach’s Note: Vanessa is one of the most popular athletes in the gym.  She’s smart and always looking for a correction on every turn.  Last year Vanessa grew 6 inches and gained 23 pounds and it really set her back on her skills.  Seems she’s done most of her growing and her skills are returning and improving rapidly.  She’s gorgeous on floor and a very powerful vaulter.  Needless to say that the growth has really slowed down her bars.  However, she’s very determined to get her skills and works at it every day.
