Two-time Canada West Regional champion, Angie Pye, talks about her gym's support, being inspired by her fellow competitors, and changing from a Games spectator in 2010 to a competitor in 2011 and 2012.
"We have a ton of other people from our box that came to support. It's awesome, there's no feeling like when they announce your name or your team's name and you can hear a ton of familiar voices in the crowd go crazy," Pye says. "It's awesome."
Yet she doesn't get that high only at Regionals. "It doesn't matter if you're competing here or if you're doing your personal best at the gym," Pye says. "There's a huge feeling of accomplishment after you do these workouts."
