Even Olympian gold medalist Simone Biles noticed young Lundyn VanderToolen, sending her a special video after this incredible achievement.
Lundyn VanderToolen, a 10-year-old LDS gymnast from Utah, was named International Gymnast Magazine’s Junior Olympic Gymnast of the Year. She is the first gymnast from Utah to win the award.
“It’s a huge honor,” said Ryan Kirkham, Lundyn’s coach, in a video posted on her YouTube channel. “It’s a huge honor for her, it’s a huge honor for the gym. We’re super excited. She deserves it, for sure.”
Lundyn started doing gymnastics when she was just 5 years old.
“I started watching the Olympics and I just wanted to do it,” Lundyn said about her inspiration to start doing gymnastics.
