"We work on our precision and grace, and we focus on form," 2017 U.S. junior all-around bronze medalist Kara Eaker told IG.


Featured in the December 2017 issue of International Gymnast magazine, 2017 U.S. junior all-around bronze medalist and balance beam gold medalist Kara Eaker told IG that her elegance is the product of meticulous attention to quality in her training.

"In the environment of our gym, we work on our precision and grace, and we focus on form," said Eaker, who trains under coaches Armine Barutyan-Fong and Al Fong at Great American Gymnastics Express in Blue Springs, Missouri. "It starts with our basics and continues through our exercises."

The December 2017 issue of International Gymnast magazine includes "Up the the Challenge," a profile on Eaker, and "Sure Bet," a cover story on two-time U.S. junior all-around champion Maile O'Keefe.
