When asked about her ‘Why’ in life, Frankie’s answer resonates with a profound simplicity and a depth of emotion that only true personal trials can forge. “For me,” she begins, her voice steady, but tinged with the weight of memory, “I lost my dad when I was younger. So most of my life, I have been just really pounding on the fact that I’m living up to my last name.”

There’s a sacred silence as she reflects, her gaze shifting momentarily to a place of introspection. “And I really want to make a legacy for myself along with my last name.”

Her ‘Why’ is a mosaic of love, loss, and the relentless pursuit of excellence—a dynamic force that propels her not only across the gymnastics floor but through the very fabric of life. “But yeah, living up to my last name is my why.

On the mat, Frankie Price is a gymnast. But in her heart, she’s a guardian of a legacy, a memory in motion, a story of unyielding strength. And as she soars through the air, twist by twist, leap by leap, she isn’t just chasing points or pursuing titles.
