GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) -In December, Gymnastics on the Grand will host 59 clubs and over 2,400 gymnasts at Gymnastics on the Grand at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids on December 2-4, 2016.
Gymnastics enthusiasts describe the sport as science in motion. It teaches athleticism, discipline, hard work, time management, and teamwork. One gymnast who saw all that pay off is Carly Patterson, who won the Olympic gold medal at age 16. She is retired from gymnastics now, but is still deeply involved in the sport by attending events like Gymnastics on the Grand.
