John Orozco:

“I feel like I have to be per­fect all the time!”

J-14 - - Quiz -

In gym­nas­tics, the ex­pec­ta­tion to hit ev­ery rou­tine is no joke — just ask John, who hails from the Bronx in N.Y.C. “I mean, even if some­one’s done a skill over 5,000 times, that doesn’t au­to­mat­i­cally mean they will be able to do it in front of mil­lions of peo­ple roar­ing,” the 23-year-old ex­plains to J-14. “It’s a lot of pres­sure — no­body’s per­fect. Peo­ple are sur­prised how much men­tal train­ing it takes ath­letes to stay fo­cused.”
