16-Year-Old Blasts Her Way Into an Olympics Possibility
At the 2016 P&G National Gymnastics Championships, Laurie Hernandez, who had just turned 16, wowed everyone with her vivacious performances. She did not seem nervous and showed the kind of consistency on each event that gets the attention of the USA Olympic Committee who will determine who is chosen for the USA Olympics Gymnastics Team.
On July 8th gymnastics fans will get another look at her. If she performs as well as she did at the national championship, my bet is that she’ll be chosen for the team.
Here she is at an interview during the podium training for the Olympic Trials:
Here is her energetic, entertaining floor exercise from the P&G championships where she came in 3rd place.
