Ariana Chenier Guerra (born June 5th, 1997) is a former senior elite American artistic gymnast. She currently trains at Texas Dreams Gymnastics in Coppell, Texas, where she is coached by former World champion Kim Zmeskal and Chris Burdette. Her best events are floor and vault.  

Junior Career

Guerra started competing elite at the Sand Dollar Elite Qualifier in 2010, where she placed 2nd all-around for compulsories. She then qualified to Visa Championships after placing 12th all-around and second on vault at the Metroplex Challenge. She also competed at the CoverGirl Classic (placing 19th AA and 8th on balance beam). Guerra competed at Visa Championships and placed 10th AA and was named to the United States Junior National Team. In November, Guerra competed in Belgium at Top Gym. There she won the silver medal in the all around, gold on vault, and bronze on beam.

In 2011, Guerra placed 3rd AA at the WOGA Classic in the junior international division. On September 1, 2011, Guerra started training with Texas Dreams Gymnastics.

She started her 2012 season at the American Classic, where she placed 8th in the all-around, 3rd on vault, and 1st on floor. She traveled to Chicago, IL for the Visa Championships, where she placed 12th all-around, 6th on vault, and 9th on floor exercise. 

Senior Career

Guerra debuted as a senior at the American Classic, where she placed 2nd all-around and 1st on floor. A few weeks later, Guerra traveled for the U.S. Classic, where she placed 8th AA and 7th on uneven bars. After that competition, she was qualified to the P&G Championships, where she competed in August. Guerra had a great first day of the competition, where she was ranked 7th in the all around with a 56.500. The second day, she competed great routines for beam and uneven bars, but rolled her ankle while warming up for floor. She had to scratch vault and floor because of this injury. Guerra still ended up placing 5th on uneven bars and 6th on beam.

Guerra has verbally committed to the University of Alabama and will attend in the fall of 2015. In 2014, she retired from elite to compete at Level 10 and focus on college.[1]
