Barry Koursarys Gymnastics

Fight for every inch during every training session in order to improve and achieve your goals

About me

I was very active as a child and I was encouraged to take up gymnastics to help me use my energy in a constructive way.

What I love most about my sport is that you have to push yourself to the limit in many ways in order to be successful. It has made me hard working and disciplined. It’s also taught me how to be competitive, how to handle pressure and to be able to perform what you love doing in front of lots of people is a great thing too.

My main qualities as an athlete are my determination and resilience.
