Local gymnast Watts working toward Rio Olympics

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — There are less than 70 days to go before the Summer Olympics begin in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Team USA is not yet set for men’s gymnastics, and a local competitor is hoping to make the squad.

Kiwan Watts, 19, graduated from L.C. Bird High School and trains at Above the Bar Gymnasium in Henrico County. He has two more events to go before the Rio Games, and he hopes to use those two events to qualify. 8Sports Anchor Chip Brierre spoke with Watts last week.
