Kanawha Co. gymnast makes prestigious national team

Posted: Updated:

A local gymnast is moving her way towards the top.

Konnor McClain started gymnastics when she was 16 months old. She will soon be able to add "USA Gymnastics TOPS Diamond Team" to her resume. At the age of seven, she's a three-time state champion.

13News Photojournalist Elbert Mosley visited Revolution Gymnastics in Cross Lanes where he sat down with McClain and her coach to talk about her love for the sport.

McClain will test again in the spring and hopefully move onto Olympic training in Houston next year.

Only 40 of the nation's best gymnasts make the TOPS Diamond Team.
