Madeiros brothers claim podium finishes
Promising gymnasts Jacob and Toby Madeiros demonstrated their potential at the YMCA National Championships in Savannah, Georgia, last week.
The brothers, sons of former Port Royal director of golf Alex Madeiros, both earned spots on the podium after impressing the judges at the event.
Jacob, ten, demonstrated why he is the state champion in the vault and high bar disciplines by placing first in all six of his events to secure age-group honours in level six. Eight-year-old Toby also held his own, placing first in vault and second on the pommel and rings to finish second overall in level five.
The pair competed for Islands YMCA Gym, who co-hosted last week's competition, and are coached by Adrian Sims and his assistant Jon Gibson.
The siblings, who live in Bluffton, South Carolina, train three times a week and share an ambition to compete at college level and, ultimately, the Olympics.
