Rally for Bailee
This morning, one of my former students shared a link to a story his newsroom produced about an eight-year-old named Bailee Iorg. She was born with a limb difference that led to an amputation of her foot when she was four months old. She started gymnastics a year ago and now she'd like to start competing.
That's a big deal for any eight-year-old. But since she has a prosthetic leg, she is unsure if she'll be allowed to compete. Her gym is waiting for USA Gymnastics to decide if she's going to participate because for now, there are no rules for or against prosthetics.
Obviously Bailee knew pretty early on that she was born just right because she's a firecracker.
