Jordyn Nicole Jaslow (also known as “Jo”) was born on May 31, 2001 in Englewood, CO to Jeff and Robyn Jaslow. She has an older brother, Justin and a twin brother, Jarod. Currently, Jordyn is a sophomore at Legend High School in Parker, CO and she will graduate from high school in 2019. She is a dedicated student having earned a semester GPA of 4.0 and a overall cumulative GPA 3.9.
Jordyn’s parents enrolled her in gymnastics for fun at the age of eight in 2008. She started her competitive gymnastics career at Alpha Gymnastics where she trained through 2010 under Coach Dan Garcia. In the spring of 2011, Jordyn began her training at Colorado Gymnastics Institute (CGI) in Aurora, CO as a level 5 gymnast. That year, she went on to score an impressive 9.900 on balance beam and tied for first place in the all-around at the 2011 Level 5 State Championships.
In 2012, Jordyn earned the title of Level 6 State Floor Champion. As a level 7 gymnast in 2013, Jordyn finished the season placing third in the all-around with a 37.550 while also placing second on balance beam. As a level 8 gymnast in 2014, Jordyn placed sixth in the all-around and sixth place on both vault and balance beam at the State Championships. She wrapped up her level 8 season at the Region 3 Championships where she finished twelfth in the all-around with a 37.475 and twelfth on beam with a 9.500.
In 2015 as a level 9 gymnast, Jordyn earned a silver medal on balance beam and a bronze medal in the all-around at the State Championships. She then went on to the Region 3 Championships where she finished ninth in the all-around and sixth on floor exercise and qualified as first alternate to the 2015 Level 9 Western Nationals in Spokane, WA.
In the summer of 2015, Jordyn began preparing for her first season as a level 10. On October 31st, Jordyn experienced a significant setback. She fractured her left femur while training a flic-flic-lay series on beam. She underwent surgery to repair the fracture the next day and was completely non-weight bearing for the next six weeks. Despite this setback, she was not willing to give up on her upcoming season. She returned to the gym one week after her injury and continued to spend her practice times working hard on her strength and flexibility. In February 2016, she was able to compete level 9 bars at Pikes Peak Cup. Two weeks later, at the Presidential Classic in Orlando, FL she added in balance beam and floor exercise. At the Denver Winterfest Classic, just 14 short weeks after her injury, she competed all four events. She ultimately went on to win the balance beam, floor exercise and all-around State Champion titles. She capped it off at regionals where she earned the title of Region 3 Uneven Bar Champion, placed second on floor exercise, finished seventh in the all-around and qualified on to the 2016 Level 9 Western Nationals in Missoula, MT.
As a first-year level 10 gymnast in 2017, Jordyn finished fourth in the all-around and first on floor exercise at the State Championships. At the Region 3 Championships, she placed third in the all-around with a 37.150, first on balance beam and second on floor exercise. Jordyn qualified to the Junior Olympic Nationals in Indianapolis, IN where she finished 22nd overall and seventh on balance beam.
Jordyn trains 28 hours per week at Colorado Gymnastics Institute in Aurora, CO under coaches Vinicio Leira, Sonia Leira and Lindy Franzini. Jordyn is working hard to reach her goals to qualify to the JO Nationals and to obtain a Division I college gymnastics scholarship.
