Everybody Has A Story

Reeve Delmas

Madion Tramel

Madison Tramel was born on November 24th, 2000 at the Baylor Medical Hospital in Grapevine, Texas. She lives in Coppell, Texas and currently is a Freshmen at Coppell High School. She is a straight A student and has been competing with her gymnastic team, Texas Dreams, since she was 4 years old.

Daily Schedule

Ever since she was a little kid, gymnastics has been her main priority in life. “I go to school from 8:20am to 2:50pm, then head straight to practice, which is from 3 to 8pm.” Madison explains. This is basically Madison's daily schedule for the week except for Saturdays, when she has practice from 7am to 12pm.

Madison's Accomplishments

When asked what she is most proud of from all the years in gymnastics, Madison replied,"I am most proud of my most recent accomplishments. I am currently the Texas State Vault Champion, Regional Champion on Vault, Bars and All Around and the Western National Vault Champion."

Future Goals?

Madison's interest in gymnastic isn't just a childhood hobby. She's actually very interested in pursuing her career in gymnastics for the rest of her life. "My dream colleges are Stanford, UCLA, and the University of Arkansas. I want to compete on on of their gymnastic teams." Says Madison.

Not only does she want to play in college but she wants to take it even further, and maybe even compete on a more global level. "It's been my dream ever since I was a little kid to go to the Olympics. My coaches tell me I have the potential, so that's really encouraging me to continue."

When Madison isn't busy with gymnastics, she is either hanging out with friends or sleeping. "I don't ever really get time to hang out or see my friends outside of school, so free time isn't something I don't take advantage of."

Major Setbacks

January of last year Madison broke her foot while balancing on a beam at practice. She was rushed to the hospital and found out that she couldn't work out or walk for the next three months, right before competition season started. "It was a really drastic moment in my life," she says. "I was really excited for the season because my team was ranked really high up. And I didn't know if the injury would affect my future in gymnastics."

A year later and Madison is competing again. " I was really happy and relieved when the doctor released me to workout again," Madison explains. "My team and coaches were more than happy that I was back and better than ever."

Madison feels that this quick recovery gave her a knew perspective on the sport. "I felt that I needed to work harder than ever before."
