Local twins shine spotlight on gymnastics

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Twins from the Charlotte area are among the best gymnasts in the Country. Anna and Grace Glenn, both 16-years old, are among 15 from Southeasern Gymnastics in Weddington, that have already committed to a Division 1 school.

The Glenn girls will be UCLA Bruins after graduating South Mecklenburg high school in 2016.

They were the first high school freshman to receive a gymnastics scholarship from UCLA.

Anna and Grace have been in the sport since they were two years old, and these days are  practice 6 days a week.

The gymnastics season starts in January, and their goal is to return to the Junior Olympic Nationals.

The Glenn girls say it takes consistency, and hard work, but they love the challenge.
