Young gymnasts qualify for national meet

ROSWELL, Ga. -- Justin Ah Chow, Patrick Kramer and Kofi Reeves-Miller aren't even in their teens yet, but they're already becoming fixtures on the men's gymnastics scene.

The three Roswell boys qualified to compete in the National Future Stars Meet, which will be held in Colorado Springs in November.

They beat out 50 Region 8 gymnasts who competed at the Roswell Recreation & Parks Gymnastics Center earlier this month for a chance to attend the Colorado meet.

"The competition at Region 8 is always challenging, and we are so proud of our 'Future Stars' and their coaches for qualifying for Nationals," Roswell Boys Gymnastics Team director and coach Ben Wood said in a statement. "The dedication and skill of the Roswell Men's Gymnastics Team always shines through in competition. We look forward to their success at Nationals in Colorado Springs."

Reeves-Miller, 10; Ah Chow, 11; and Kramer, 12, train 20 hours a week. They began competing in gymnastics when they were very young; their mothers are full of stories of them hanging from banisters and climbing up doorways when they were babies.

The National Future Stars Meet will be held Nov. 8-11. It is part of the Future Stars Program, which helps to develop and educate young athletes.
