Carolina Ameling

carolina2Hi, my name is Carolina and i am the treasure of Saltare. I’ve always lived in Belgium but by blood i’m Colombian because I was adopted when I was a baby.

I’m 23 years young now and really love gymnastics. As a kid a was really active and I  loved jumping and tumbling all around the house but… my parents didn’t liked that because of the furniture LOL. So that was the moment they said I had to try gymnastics. And so I trained for years to get better. I have trained 15 hours a week and enjoyed doing competitions a lot. Saddly enough I struggled with two injuries. I had to stop when I was 16 because of the pain.

In Antwerp (Belgium) I did freerunning and fitness but when I came to Tilburg for the study psychology I found the association Saltare. I really wanted to do gymnastics again and when I came for the first time i knew this was gonna be my favorite place. Everybody is so lovely and full of energy and… the crazyness, I love it. I also became an assistant trainer this year. so it’s possible I’ll give the training sometimes. Because I am so involved with the trainings I decided to join the board. I actually like the responsibility and the board members are amazing.

Beside of gymnastics I had a lot of hobby’s. I have danced for a while, played tennis for a few years, followed music lessons and played guitar and a little piano. For now I also squash and fitness. Of course I like to sing all day but it’s not a talent of me hihi. I think I’m most of the time a sportive, happy and crazy person and I really love to play games becauseIi really love to hang out with friends.
