JUNIOR OLYMPICS: Des Moines To Host Gymnasts


Des Moines has landed a big event and it could bring another gold medalist to the metro.

The 2015 U.S. Women`s National Junior Olympic Championships will be held at Hy-Vee Hall. It will bring in 500 gymnasts and will likely showcase the top contenders for the 2020 Olympics.

The USA Gymnastics president told Des Moines Register reporter Bryce Miller it is recognition of the role Des Moines has started to play in the sport.

Olympic gold medalists Shawn Johnson and Gabby Douglas trained at Chow’s Gymnastics in West Des Moines, and three more Chow’s gymnasts are generating Olympic buzz.

Chow’s will organize the event alongside the Des Moines Area Sports Commission.
