Are You Related to a Gymnast?

Posted September 21, 2012 by Amanda | One Comment

This Saturday, September 22, is National Gymnastics Day! Since the Olympics, the Fierce Five have been making their way around the country showcasing their talents on their championship tour. You may have even spotted one of their many television appearances! In fact, it was just announced that two-time Olympic gold medalist Gabby Douglas would be guest starring on the television show The Vampire Diaries. Could you be related to Aly Raisman, Jordyn Wieber, McKayla Maroney, Kyla Ross and Gabby Douglas? Check out the Team USA Gymnasts project on Geni and help connected them to over 64 million people in the World Family Tree! Join this project to help build the family trees of all those who have competed on the U.S. national team.

Fun fact: the Fierce Five are also big Justin Bieber fans. Kyla Ross may be happy  to hear that she is Bieber’s 22nd cousin twice removed!

Do you have any gymnasts in your family? Want to see how you’re related to gymnasts from other parts of the world? We encourage you to start a new project on Geni now!
