Justin Karstadt is from Futures Gymnastics in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada where he is coached by Zhaohui Huang and Steven Sugrim. He hails from Toronto, Ontario, Canada and attends Silverthorn Collegiate Institute. While Justin obviously was not a part of the US National scene last summer he is no stranger to high level competition and great results. At the 2014 Canadian Junior National Championships Justin posted the top All Around score at the competition, winning the coveted Gold Medal for his efforts in the All Around. After winning the All Around at Nationals Karstadt went on to win the Gold Medal on Pommel Horse and the Silver Medal on Still Rings, Parallel Bars, and High Bar. Justin also competed at the 2014 Junior Pan Am Championships in Aracaju, Brazil where he helped Team Canada win the Bronze medal and he went on to win the Silver Medal on Pommel Horse

“Justin is definitely a great addition to our program and his success at the Canadian Junior Nationals is a testament to not only his talent but also knowing how to succeed when the stakes are the highest. That is an awesome recipe for success and we are very happy with Justin’s decision to become a Golden Gopher in the fall of 2015, joining a very talented group of incoming freshmen. Justin is bringing some pretty impressive credentials to the table and he still has one year of high school remaining.”
