Young NZ gymnasts take on world
Mon, 13 Aug 2012 7:00p.m.
For our amateur athletes, the Olympic Games set the standard for success. Standing on the winner’s dais, holding a medal – that's the dream.
But in an Olympic year, it's nice to remember that there are other accomplishments that are also just as important.
A group of young gymnasts from Christchurch recently competed alongside the world's best in the United States.
They made it despite the odds. Their practice gym was ruined in the earthquakes – their training programme thrown into disarray.
But then gymnastics is all about determination, and these girls have it in abundance.
Watch the video to see their story.
