ATHLETE PROFILE: BEN MARTIN

GOLD MASTERED

Ben Martin (age 13) started with Victoria Gymnastics in 2006 at the age of 4 ½. Over the last 9 years Ben

has worked his way through all the CANGYM colour levels and attained his GOLD MASTER in March.

Ben joined the recreational program in Parent and Tot and spent a short time in the Performance group

before joining the competitive program in 2009. That year, his first competition was the Delta

Invitational where he placed Silver All Around. Last year at the same competition he earned 7 medals (1

bronze, 4 silver, 1 gold and Silver All Around).

Ben likes gymnastics because it makes him strong and his favourite events are floor and rings. He has

made good friends at the gym including Dziva, Alexsei, and Oliver. He also likes to participate in the

Santa Claus and Oak Bay Tea party parades each year with many other Victoria gymnasts.

Gymnastics has taught Ben the importance of setting goals, being resilient, and to keep trying even

when things are hard or scary.

Ben hopes to start his Coach In Training certification in the Fall.
