“Our boys’ team missed most of last year’s competitions when many gyms, including ours, closed because of the pandemic,” said Jason Hebert, Director of World Cup Gymnastics. “Fortunately, they continued to train by working out with their coaches on Zoom and conditioning on their own. They were able to quickly pick up where they left off when they were allowed to return to the gym. Their efforts paid off and they should be very proud of their accomplishments,” he added.
World Cup Gymnastics has been training State, Regional and National Champions for over 25 years.
