Join us as we congratulate USA Gymnastic Champion Level 9, Olivia Zsarmani
By FRAN FARRER
STATESVILLE, NC – Imagine how 13-year-old Olivia Zsarmani felt when she received a letter in mid-May from Debby Kornegay saying, “Congratulations for becoming a USA Gymnastics Level 9 Eastern National Champion by placing first on an event or all around, or being a member of a first place team. Region 8 would like to honor you at Region 8 Congress in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. We would like to present you and your coaches with a small gift at the banquet at the Salem Ballroom at the Benton Convention Center.
Olivia, her parents, Xavier and Tonya Zsarmani, and her four sisters and baby brother, were all in awe.
A dedicated gymnast for seven years, Oliva reached this plateau by winning in the Regionals in Brandington, Florida, and when Region 8 was successful May 8, 2018 in the Nationals held in Rochester, New York. She is now a Level 10 gymnast.
Oliva graduated from West Middle School, and hopes to attend South Iredell in the fall because it is near her practice facility.
Now join us again as we give an early “Birthday Shout Out to Olivia,” who will celebrate her 14th birthday June 19, 2018.
