Danell Johan Leyva

Gymnast

                      

   

What was your favorite part about being a gymnast?

My favorite part about being a gymnast aside from traveling to amazing places and meeting great people, is the immense rush I get whenever I perform in front of a big audience .

 

Who were your heroes growing up?

Paul Hamm, Blaine Wilson and Alexy Nemov.

 

What has been your career highlight so far?

Making high bar finals 2 times in a row at World Championships, and making all around finals at the 2010 Worlds.

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring athlete?

No matter how hard times may get, never give up on your dream regardless what that dream may be.

 

What is your favorite quote and why?

Train as if you are the worst, compete as if you are the best.  Because it tells you to never be satisfied with "ok" and to always show off when it counts.

 

What is on your ipod?

I have a variety so big on my ipod I honestly don't think I have enough space to put it all on - ha ha.
