Therefore, out of my experience, I can already tell you are one of the rare determined ones. The sheer proof of my claim is you reading this sentence right now.

Everything you need to know about Gymnastics Requirements on level 8
Level 8 is one of the optional levels alongside levels 9 and 10. The youngest gymnast in level eight can be 8 years old. There is no limit to how old they can be to be in the level of discussion. As long as you are well aware of the basic skill, age is just a number! (As long as it’s up the bar set).
Much similar to the immediately previous level 7, a fine and fair line is drawn between the skills a gymnast is required to do and the level of difficulty each of these skills has.
As you gradually progress towards more senior levels, the difficulty level increases. Keeping that in mind, the skill set needed for level 8 consists of 4 ‘A’ skills and 4 ‘B’ skills.
A gymnast may jump over to ‘C’ skills to fulfill her requirements if there is a lack.
Correspondingly, replacements can occur within levels if they fulfill the difficulty criteria. A gymnast may design her routine basing it on the requirements.
Additionally, a gymnast is required to take a start in level eight with a value of 10.0, which is the base score of all levels. The judges continue to deduct points from this score for all the errors being made.
The skills that a routine can encompass for level 8 according to each event are mentioned below;
Level 8 Gymnastics Requirements: Vault
