Read on to gain an insider’s perspective and fascinating insight into the life of a true
Sun Country Superstar!

Name: Chelsea Wagner

Position: Rainbow Gymnastics, Celebration Squad

Tenure: <1 year

  1. What is your greatest fear?
    Jellyfish! They may look cool but when they sting you when you’re swimming in the ocean, they aren’t so cool anymore.
  2. Where is your favorite place to be?
    Sun Country Sports Center 😉 or laying near a nice beach or pool.
  3. What is one thing you couldn’t live without?
    Food: literally and figuratively. Whether I am traveling or just here in Gainesville, I find the best spots to eat!
  4. What is your personal philosophy?
    “After a hurricane comes a rainbow.” There is always something positive coming your way so just be happy and take whatever life throws at you!
  5. What would you most likely to tell yourself at age 13?
    I would tell myself to start developing better habits! Things like eating better and to stop taking so many naps, it’s almost 8 years later and nothing has changed.
  6. What has surprised you most about working with children?
    I was surprised at how outspoken kids are. They say whatever is on their mind and it’s really funny.
  7. What do you wish other people knew about gymnastics?
    I wish other people knew that it is a really hard sport that takes determination and drive. (And it’s just not about being flexible!!)
  8. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
    I wanted to be a mountain climber and one day climb Mount Everest and literally be on top of the world. At that time, I didn’t know how difficult and dangerous that climbing the tallest mountain would actually be.
  9. If you could share a meal with anyone in all of history, who would it be?
    Walt Disney. He was such an inspiration and created one of my favorite places!
  10. What is on your bucket list?
    Attending the Super Bowl and visit as many different countries that I can!
