Top 5 Olympic Gymnasts We Look Up To As Role Models

Updated: Oct 6




It's easy to get caught up in the minutia of technique, skill training, strength work and the day-to-day goings on of gym life. That's why Golden Isles Gymnastics has used the challenges of 2020 to springboard into a mentality of personal growth. Because we don't spend hours working hard at the gym just to become better athletes-

We do it to become better people.

Here are five gymnasts who give us inspiration to live our best lives both inside and outside the gym.
