You Gold Girl!
Fly Lady of the Day Gymnast Kayla Williams Makes History
Gymnast Kayla Williams recently made our country proud winning the world championship title in the vault competition. The 16- year-old athlete from Huntington, West Virginia is the first U.S woman to bring home the gold in the category. She wowed the world with her strong and smooth landing at the competition held in London. Just five months ago Williams competed in the level one notch below the elite level. Williams not only proved she could play with the big dogs, but beat them. Not bad being this was her first international competition. Don't you love a good sports story about trial and triumph? According to the USA Gymnastics website Williams is in the 11th grade and her favorite TV shows are "House of Payne" of "Meet the Browns." I can't wait to see Kayla set it off at the 2012 Olympics in London.
