Being near the top three on the ranking list as of 12/25/09 surprised Kristian Roberts, who has only been vaulting for four years. ?It's a very new experience for me. ... surprising to be thrust into a world of elite vaulters ... compete against them which, so far, has gone pretty well,? he says.
Consistent training and practice, not taking any time off, and reviewing scores from the competitions leading up to WEG are all part of his plan for this season, along with wanting to simplify his routines to make them as clean and consistent as possible ... without compromising on difficulty. He said that, ? The CVI in Kentucky was?definitely an eye opener as to the level of competition I was to be expected to go against.? Since he managed a third place overall at that competition, we can probably expect great things from this new young vaulter.
