SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Gymnastics has added Sarah Krump to the 2023 roster, head coach Tom Farden announced Wednesday morning. Krump, who will be added to the roster as a preferred walk-on, will join Makenna Smith as the newest Red Rocks to the program in the fall of 2022.
“Sarah is an athlete that dreamed about being a Red Rock from an early age and we are so excited that she will be living out her dreams as a member of our program,” said Farden. “She came to all of our camps as a young gymnast and already has a strong passion for this program. Sarah has extremely nice lines and an artistry to her gymnastics that our fans will love.”
Krump is a two-time Junior Olympic National Championship qualifier. She made her debut at the national championships in 2019, then returning in 2021 to tie for fourth place on beam to highlight her competition.
Krump is coming off a second-place finish on beam at the 2022 Nevada State Championships in late March. The year prior at the 2021 state meet, the Las Vegas native had an exceptional showing as she won the floor title, placed second on beam, and finished third on vault and in the all-around. Shortly after, Krump competed at the 2021 Region 1 Championships and was the runner up on beam, fifth in the all-around, and sixth on vault and floor.
Joining the Red Rocks with a familiar feel to the Salt Lake City area, Krump is set to return just miles from her hometown after she had grown up in Holladay, Utah, and trained at GTC (Gymnastics Training Center) prior to making the move to Las Vegas for the 2020 season.
Krump currently trains at Brown’s Gymnastics in Las Vegas. The daughter of Tim and Michele Krump attends Odyssey Charter School and has been a high honor roll student from 2019-2022. She was also a National Honors Society member this past year. She has four siblings: Emma, Matthew, Jack and Santino.
