Great news! The steady Ms Sternberg has followed the path of several Aussies and pursued collegiate gymnastics in the USA, recently joining the ranks at University of California for the 2014-2015 season.
Yuleen, who has also trained in Japan, had been spending quite some time in California, balancing schooling with gymnastics training at Head Over Heels Gymnastics. Her bars skills and vault confidence flourished at the centre, and she put herself up for recruiting. She will now proudly join the ranks of the 'Cal' Bears as an all-arounder, and says head coach Justin Howell:
"On the uneven bars, Yuleen has an amazing variety of skills from us to choose from and we’re really looking forward to being able to make some unique skill choices. She also has a very elegant line... Yuleen also brings experience with international competition, so she knows what it’s like to compete and focus on difficulty level and execution. It will really help her bring a polished look to her collegiate performances."
