While most people spent Thanksgiving weekend eating turkey, shopping or relaxing, Edwardsville High School 9th grader Micah Miner was winning a bronze medal.
The world class gymnast finished third in the 13-14 men’s age group of the double mini trampoline at the World Age Group Competition of the Tumbling and Trampoline World Championships held November 25-28, 2021 in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Miner, who trains out of Kris’ Power Tumbling in Shelbyville, Ill., was the only USA athlete to compete in all three events (trampoline, double-mini and tumbling). He finished 19th in the world in the individual trampoline competition (which is also an Olympic sport) with a new personal record for total score and placed 14th in tumbling.
