Olympics inspiring Iowa kids to sign up for gymnastics

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The Rio Olympics are less than a couple weeks away. 

We're excited to see the women's gymnastics team in action.

They're already inspiring a lot of people in eastern Iowa.

It turns out they're so inspiring, that some kids are willing to try something new. 

Black Hawk Gymnastics says recently they've seen a spike in people signing up for classes. 

One coach says she hears some of her kids talking about Olympic gymnasts, saying they want to be like them one day. 

Black Hawk Gymnastics says it's not just what the women's Olympic team is doing, but also their positive and hard-working attitudes that are inspiring kids. 

The gym says this seems to happen every four years with the Olympics, but so far this year has been big because of how strong the women's team seems to be. 

The Olympic games begin August 5th. You can watch it right here on KWWL.
