Mexican Gymnasts Shine in Pan Am Games – Zihuatanejo Has Gymnasts Too!

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.
