Maui athlete Jonathan You started his 2012 season off right by earning gold at the USA Gymnastics Men’s “Pot O Gold” meet in Honolulu on March 12. You is a 13-year-old Level 6 gymnast from Valley Isle Gymnastics in Kahului. He was the only Maui athlete at the Oahu meet and took the gold medal in vault and silver medal on the rings. You also placed fourth on floor and horizontal bar at the Pot-O-Gold meet.
“Our entire gym is so excited for Jonathan,” said Coach Rusty Gage of Valley Isle Gymnastics. “Not only was he the only man representing Maui at this particular meet, he’ll be the only man representing Maui competing in the upcoming April 1 state championships. From there, he’ll be one of an exclusive set of six men who’ve been chosen to represent all of Hawaii in the April 15 Regional Championships in Reno. I have no doubt he’ll represent our state well in each of these competitions, too.”
Valley Isle Gymnastics also recently moved their gym, and are now located a few doors down from their original location in Kahului from 250 Alamaha suite N8 to suite N3. For more information, visit valleyislegymnastics.com or facebook.com/valleyislegymnastics.
