Juniors to Watch: Jazmyn Foberg

This junior to watch,Jazmyn Foberg is teammates with junior dynamo, Laurie Hernandez. Young Jazmyn, aka Jazzy has a few tricks up her leotard sleeve.


Full Name: Jazmyn (Jazzy) Foberg
Date of Birth: February 2, 2000
Age: 14
Club: MG Elite
Coach: Maggie Haney
Hometown: Bayville, New Jersey, USA

Jazmyn became an elite in 2013 after a strong showing at the Parkette's Elite Qualifier, but 2014 is the year she came out as a contender in the international elite scene.
She originally started training at Precision gymnastics, but moved to MG Elite when she found out that Laurie was training there and made the move to be able to compete at Laurie's level. Along with Laurie, Jazzy trains with another Rio hopeful, Ariana Agrapides, who completes the MG Elite Three Elite Musketeers.

At the start of 2014 Jazmyn stood out at the American Classic, the pre-qualifier to the Secret Classic where she placed first in the all-around. At the Secret Classic, Jazzy placed fourth in the all-around, improving from the prior year's 11th place finish. She was also among nine juniors who were invited to compete in the senior ranks.

Jazzy is dynamic on beam, showing the artistry that MG Elite is known for. She also prefers the uneven bars. On vault, she upgraded to a double twisting Yurchenko. Her floor is performed to Lily Allen's "Never Gonna Happen" with sassy choreography, courtesy of her coach, Maggie Haney who choreographs her girls' routines to their individual personalities.
