A father was moved to tears as he watched his daughter’s flawless gymnastics performance set to Taylor Swift’s “Never Grow Up.”

Gymnastics epitomizes hard work, dedication, and a profound passion for the sport. Each routine represents a narrative woven from countless hours of training, creating a unique connection between the gymnast and the audience.

In a poignant climax, Abby Paulson, a senior at the University of Utah, achieved her second perfect 10 in her collegiate career. Her performance, choreographed to Taylor Swift’s “Never Grow Up,” resonated deeply with many, particularly her father. A former Olympic wrestler, he sat in the audience wearing a red jacket, visibly moved by his daughter’s flawless routine.

Abby Paulson’s accolades extend beyond the gym; she was honored as the 2024 Pac-12 Women’s Gymnastics Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Pursuing a double major in Kinesiology and Political Science, she maintains an impressive GPA of 3.966 and is on track to graduate by the end of the 2024 academic year.

The emotional response of Abby’s father to her victory serves as a poignant reminder of the profound bond shared between parents and children. From the moment of their child’s birth, parents treasure every moment of growth and steadfastly support them through every triumph and challenge.

May we always cherish and uplift one another, mirroring the unconditional love and support that God showers upon us throughout our journey. Our familial bonds serve as a tangible reflection of God’s enduring love for humanity.
