Olympic Champion puts his daughter in Preschool

Kyle Shewfelt was the 2004 Olympic Champion on Floor.

Here’s why he put his 3-year-old daughter into Gymnastics in his own club.

Kyle:

Many people ask me if she will be an Olympic gymnast. My answer is always, “Sure, if she wants to be”. …

My biggest hope for Nora is that she finds the thing that makes her heart sing. If it’s not gymnastics, I am totally okay with that. I do, however, have a requirement that she takes gymnastics classes in her youth because of the strong foundation it will build for her future.

Here are some of the reasons why I put my daughter into gymnastics:

Role Models …

Relationship Building … 

Listening and Focusing Skills … 

Building Confidence … 

Good Citizen Skills … 

Fun! … 

Community … 

Physical Activity … 

Physical Literacy … 

Independence … 

Safety and Respect …
