The team finished 4th in state and uber talented Freshman, Max Diab, placed 2nd in Still Rings.

Also, Max's brother and former GBW state champ as a Freshman, Alex Diab, recently won the Still Rings National Championship and finished in 6th place in the All Around in the 16 Year Old Division of the US Men's Junior Olympic National Championships. Remember his name when the 2020 Summer Olympics roll around.....

Is mens gymnastics like womens, where you peak at like 16 (or 12 if you're the Chinese Olympic team)? Not joking, I was just wondering if the average age of the mens gymnastics teams is higher than the womens. I don't really watch a lot of either.

Men gymnasts peak in their 20s. Very rarely would a teenager ever make the Men's National team. Alex Diab has been for years and remains one of the most talented gymnasts in this country. If you want to see something really cool, search on Youtube for his perfect 10 high bar routine as a Freshman at GBW 2 years ago. You see that performance AS A 14 YEAR OLD and you simply shake your head. I would link it but I can't from my office.

Not to mention that he, his brother, and the entire family are wonderful, long time residents of GE. We are lucky to have them in our midst.
