The thing that sets Julia Stedman apart from other gymasts is exactly what carried her to the  Class 2A All-Around championship Saturday at the Gymnastics State Meet.

Stedman wants to win and she’s not afraid to show it. Where other gymnasts smile and hug each other after good routines, the North St. Paul senior has been known to jab the air with an exclamatory fist-pump, puncutated by a wrinkled nose and a fervent “Yes!” uttered through gritted teeth.
