When the world thinks of gymnasts, people have not historically thought of Mexicans. But, Mexican gymnasts now compete proudly in this sport. Recently, the world watched as these athletes performed in the Pan American Games held in Toronto. Look at the video of some of our international competitors.
Gymnastics is a wonderful sport that teaches discipline, concentration, teamwork, and other values as well as the physical ones. In the Ixtapa Zihuatanejo area, we have Gym Chan Zihuatanejo program for children and youth. The program is run by Professor Jorge Luis Chan, who is devoted to the youth in our area.
Professor Chan teaches discipline, gymnastics, and grace to kids in our area. Kids are trained for athletic competitions.
Here is a video of the group’s competition in Acapulco in March 2015.
And, below is a photo of the medal winners at the gymnastics convention in Lazaro Cardenas that was held on June 23, 2015, where the team won 9 medals: 5 First Place; 2 Second Place; and 2 Third Place. Great work!
Gymnastic classes for children are held every afternoon during the summer in Parque Los Mangos in central Zihuatanejo. Some kids are just born to be. . .
