Muhr places sixth on balance beam

Cammi Muhr from KidzPlex Gymnastics placed sixth on balance beam with a score of 9.45 on Saturday night at the Junior Olympic National Championships in Dallas.

Her Region 3 team won the overall national team competition.

Muhr successfully performed her new beam dismount, which will be known as the “Muhr” in the International Code of Points. The Grand Junction High School senior was the first person in the world to perform the skill, a front layout with two twists, during national competition.

Muhr’s coach, Brian Bensley, said six NCAA Division I schools expressed an interest in signing Muhr, who was offered full scholarships during the event.

Muhr, who expects to be contacted by several more schools, will take some time to make her college choice, Bensley said.
