We introduced you to Bailee Iorg a few weeks ago. She has hoped to one day compete in USA Gymnastics, something a person with a prosthetic has never done before.
USA Gymnastics sent us a statement Monday, paving the way for Bailee to compete. It said, in part:
“USA Gymnastics does not have a policy that precludes an athlete with a prosthetic device from competing; however we plan to monitor and address any areas of concern.
We trust that Bailee and her coaches will monitor her skill level and capability to determine her competitive readiness and wish Bailee the best of luck as she pursues her athletic dreams.”
