Gymnastics Medicine founder, Dr. Elly Hart, was the USA Women’s Artistic Gymnastics (WAG) medical provider at the first ever Junior Pan American Games. Elly travelled with the USA team from Miami to Cali, Colombia in November 2021. The USA women’s team took 1st place overall, as well as 1st and 2nd in the All Around. In the event finals, USA captured 1st and 2nd on vault, 1st and 3rd on uneven bars, 1st and 2nd on beam, and 1st and 2nd on the floor exercise.
With the team, Elly would provide any medical needs required at practice and competition, along with recovery methods post competition and training. This was Elly’s 2nd international assignment as medical staff for USA’s Women’s Artistic Gymnastics, the first being in Mexico for the Junior Pan Am Championships (where the USA women’s team also took 1st place).
Thank you for all the wonderful care you provide to our gymnasts Elly!
