Region 2 Level 9 - Kiana Killian - Rose City Rhythmics , Portland, Ore.
"I am looking forward to competing in the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid and being part of a high level competition. Since I am the only level 9 or 10 gymnast in my gym, I would like to be an inspiration to the younger gymnasts. Additionally, I would like to represent my coaches who have helped me improve this year despite many difficulties. Thank you for your patience."

Region 2 Team - Level 9 - Gosia (Malgorzata) Staszewska - Lake City Rhythmics, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho
"My goal in Rhythmic gymnastics is to be a National Team member and to represent USA Internationally. Since I was 6, I had and still have the same long term goal, I want to be a Brevet judge as well as a Rhythmic coach. I really enjoy choreographing routines and learning the code of points and I cannot stand a day without practicing. I love learning and mastering new skills, as well as perfoming. Rhythmics is my life and passion, basically it defines me."
