Starting tomorrow, the eyes of the world will be watching as the best athletes compete against each other for olympic glory.

One of the most popular olympic events to watch is gymnastics, and a national JumpStart team looks for and trains young gymnasts between seven and twelve years old in the sport of tumbling and trampoline.

This year, 3 girls from Washington have been selected to be part of this elite team of athletes.

Well, we're all super excited to see how team USA does in gymnastics this year - no doubt they'll be impressive!

Following the Olympics, members of the men's and women's olympic teams are expected to join dozens of other world-class gymnasts in Seattle on the Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics Champions Tour at Key Arena on September 23rd.
