Tyler, TX — It was an exciting night for aspiring gymnasts all over the world. In Tyler- gymnasts are inspired after watching the USA Women's Gymnastics Team take home gold.
They took home the gold for the first time in sixteen years, the journey and celebration hit close to home....
Aspiring gymnasts-- watched the U-S-A Women's Gymnastics Team achieve their dream--
just like the gymnasts at Texas East Gymnastics in Tyler.
Their confidence shined through their smile... because gymnastics is what these girls love.
They practice weekly and compete to get to the next level of gymnastics, it's hard work and dedication. They are inspired by Olympic gymnasts and know that fulfilling a dream is possible.
They are team players and give each other support as they train for this competitive sport. Several gymnasts at Texas East Gymnastics have advanced and participated in competitions. I spoke to Tracie LaTray, Gymnastics Coach, at Texas East Gymnastics about how the win inspired her class.....
Youth gymnastics is successful because of the support of parents or kids to do what they love, it is rewarding and inspires them to do their best.
