LAKEWOOD, Colo. — The 9Preps "Swag Chain" has found another state champion.
Gianna Martyna of Green Mountain gymnastics was named 9NEWS Athlete of the Week, earning her the trophy we're using this year to recognize stellar athletic performances.
Martyna, a senior gymnast for the Rams, was crowned the 4A all-around gymnastics state champion. She captured the vault title on Saturday with an impressive score of 9.925 and also scored very well on the bars, beam and floor.
9Preps reporter Scotty Gange surprised Martyna on Thursday during her AP English class to celebrate the accomplishment.
"I want to thank my family, friends, teammates, teachers and coaches," Martyna said of the Swag Chain honor. "I am so grateful to be loved and supported by so many and feel so honored to represent my school. It truly does take a village, so thank you everyone who has supported me not just in gymnastics, but as a person too. Go Rams!"
Stay tuned to see who wins the Swag Chain next week!
