Call to the gymternet!  The delightful Deanne Soza has contracted a very serious eye infection, which affects obviously not only her gymnastics, but potentially her ability to see. 
So what can we do?
I’m hoping that maybe we can send her something to cheer her up a little.  My idea is to take pictures that you, the amazing gymternet, take/draw/create and put those onto a card for her. 
Maybe it’s a picture of a get well sign that you’re holding up for her, maybe it’s a drawing of her you made while you were bored in class, maybe it’s one of those fancy edits that all the kids are doing these days.  Whatever you would like to share that is appropriate and uplifting. 
There is room for about 30 pictures on the card.  Perhaps if we get billions of fabulous submissions, we’ll send more cards.  But for now it would be awesome if we could put 30 pictures on this card, and send it to Arete. 
If you’d like to participate, and I hope that you do because Deanne is incredible, either post your picture here, or email it to me at spannytampson@gmail.com. 
GO GYMTERNET GO!

Excited to announce that my website The Gymternet will be producing its first documentary series! We will be working with one of the top elite gyms in the country, checking in every couple of months as their athletes train and prepare. 15 minute episodes will be released every few months, and the project will culminate with the announcement of the 2016 Olympic team at Olympic Trials, when we will release the entire process as a feature-length documentary. Info about the gym/cast coming soon!
