Emi Watterson is from Brisbane, Australia and competing with the Cal Gymnastics team.
The gymnast was named to the All-Pac-12 Uneven Bars Second Team twice, an Uneven Bars Honorable Mention in 2020, and a Pac-12 All-Academic Honorable Mention in 2019 per the team’s site. Watterson also was the Pac-12 Specialist of the Week (Jan. 22, 2020) per the Cal Bears.
You can add another Pac-12 Specialist of the Week to her resume as she was recently given that award again recently.
The award came after a week where this happened:
“Watterson, a senior at the University of California, Berkeley…successfully earned a perfect score during the routine against the University of Utah…making her only the second gymnast in her school’s history to do so and the first since 1992” according to People.
“I still can’t believe it!!” Watterson said retweeting Cal Gymnastics’ Tweet.
Congrats to Watterson!
