Both made the decision. The coach couldn't do it if the comp company said no and if the coach said no, the comp company couldn't do it.
The girl was on a lower level and was not allowed to do certain things. She did not practice with us, she practiced with her own team. She saw us perform as we all watched each other.
The comp company gave additional time in warm up area since my teammate was lying there not moving. She was not in my stunt group but if the on stage spotters were in warm ups she would have never been hurt. How she fell they would have had to have been there to help save her. We were so upset we couldn't stop crying. That had never happened before. They had to let people go ahead of us and ambulance took teammate away. Then we were told to hurry up and teach stunts. The girl went up barely then back down on my head as we fell to the floor.
The sad thing is the comp and coaches knew how upset we were and we were all minors at the time. To think that is allowed is awful. We were given as much time as the division lasted and it wasn't long. We were last ones to go on. I can't give an exact time. If you think about how long a routine is and we were not first then what had happened and everything, there's no way for a ton of time to go by. All I can say is major changes need to take place and not at the kids expense. We are not just a number for the golden trophy and for the comp people to make money. It's insulting everything that when on from that day and after. I think a lot needs to change because the meaning behind why we do it has changed. Our lives are more important than that. These poor kids and parents have no idea.
