A Reminder for All of Us OF True Competition
More than a 100 teams traveled from 30 states, bringing with them more than 2400 athletes and 350 coaches to Toledo this past week as the YMCA hosted its 53rd National Gymnastics Championships in the Glass City. The theme, Shattering Expectations, was not only appropriate for these young gymnasts, but also for our rust-belt community as both were eager to combat the status quo.
For the gymnasts, it was moment to shine and show their peers across the nation of their capability. For Toledo, it was an opportunity to shrug off a stereotype that our city has seen its best. And for Lighthouse, it was an opportunity to step up and support the community that supports us, having the opportunity of being one of several sponsors to help such an incredible event take place.
