Acadiana’s Savannah Thompson Wins National Trampoline Championship
Former U.S. Olympian and Acadiana native Savannah Thompson is at it again.
Over the weekend, Savannah took home gold in the Sr. Elite Trampoline division at the USA Gymnastics Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina.
This acclaimed gymnast, formerly Savannah Vinsant, competed in the 2012 Olympic Games in London. She would briefly retire and opened Hangtime TNT Gymnastics in Scott.
However, Savannah started training four months ago in preparation for this weekend's competition.
It was actually a pretty good weekend for Acadiana as Lafayette's Nicole Ashinger placed second in the same division. Ashinger competed in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
Congrats to both of these outstanding athletes and thanks for representing Acadiana so well!
