Character Bio

Payson Keeler photo
Payson Keeler is a the top girl gymnast at The Rock. Payson is a focused girl who has her mind set on winning Nationals, and eventually the Olympics. To do this, she trains 24/7 while fighting a persistent back injury that later affected her performance in Nationals. She is best friends with Lauren and Kaylie. Payson's father recently lost his job, but was offered his old one in Minnesota. Payson has a rivalry going on with Kelly Parker, who had won the previous Nationals. They push each other in and out of first place.

However, in the season finale, Payson's decision to not use cortisone after seeing Kelly Parker use it, caused her to fall during her uneven bars routine and suffer a lumbosacral fracture. She is told that any more gymnastics would paralyze her. She also has feelings for the top male gymnast at The Rock, admiring his similar work ethic and dedication to gymnastics. As a result of her fierce drive and dedication to win, her father believes that Payson has the ability to somehow 'box' each of her emotions, and completely isolate herself from that emotion if it is not needed. After a talk with her parents, she finally lets out her emotions, breaking all of her trophies as a result of her frustration about not being able to compete. She reveals her complete jealousy towards Kaylie for winning Nationals, although she later encourages Kaylie to act like a champion and believe in herself more.
