(10 votes, average 4.00 out of 5)

The March 2018 issue of International Gymnast magazine includes a feature called “Daughter & Mother,” comprised of interviews with Morgan Hurd and Sherri Hurd.

We asked Morgan if she was nervous during qualifications at the 2017 World Championships.

She replied, “I mean, the nerves are always there, so I was a little nervous. But I thought it was a pretty good standing (sixth place) considering I had some mistakes.”

And what skills worried her the most at those Worlds?

“Probably the most worrisome was my standing full on beam, just because I had a little bit of trouble with that throughout the year.”

We asked Sherri what her emotions were like after Morgan won the all-around.

“I was in shock. People around me were crying and I just kind of had to take a minute to really, like, realize my kid just won Worlds. You have to remember — I mean, to me she’s still just my kid who won’t put her laundry away. She’s just regular Morgan, so I kind of was like, ‘Oh my gosh!’”

And what makes Sherri most proud about her daughter?

“Her professionalism when she’s doing her gymnastics. That makes me very proud the way she can communicate with the press and other adults. Of course, her dedication and commitment makes me very proud.”
