ASG Alumni Spotlight: Abbey Burns Tucker

June 30, 2016 by admin

We continue our ASG Alumni Spotlight series, featuring former gymnasts and coaches who have all left their own little mark on ASG. It’s a fun way for current families to see the rich history of Atlanta School of Gymnastics and for alumni to catch back up with those friends (and coaches) they grew up making memories with. We have had a great response to those wanting to participate so hope you enjoy!

Today’s alumni spotlight is Abbey (Burns) Tucker:

When did you attend ASG?


Did you pursue gymnastics following your time at ASG? If yes, where did you continue your gymnastics career?

Louisiana State University

What post-ASG accomplishments or highlights, gymnastics-related or not, are you most proud of?
3-time All-American and 1 time All-SEC
What is your current occupation?

Stay at home Mom and kid chauffeur. I also have a small side craft business with my mom.

What are your favorite memories from ASG?

I just loved being there. My teammates were my best friends. I loved summer practices, early mornings, basic tumbling outside, and theme practice days, like USA day. I remember having to get there early for add-on on the trampoline and organizing my locker with foam pit shelves. Conditioning with Tammi until I was in tears but loving it at the same time. Beam sheets with Delene and learning the judging short hand. Tom’s sense of humor and Phillip’s drills and stick gymnast drawings for demonstrations. I really could keep going because they were so many great ones.

What lessons have you taken away from the sport of gymnastics?

I learned a lot about time management and staying focused towards a goal. I learned that if you work hard at something you will be rewarded.

What are your current hobbies and interests?

I love hanging out with my family. I enjoy knitting and crafting. I would like to get back into the sport, like coaching.

Please tell us some interesting or fun things about yourself.
  • I have 3 girls, Aspen, Cheyenne and Montana (and dog Dakota)
  • I lived in Colorado for 5 years and learned to snowboard.
  • I wish I could still do a standing back tuck.
