I’ve always admired Jordyn Weiber because she is really awesome. Jordyn Weiber is an Olympian in women’s gymnastics. Jordyn’s favorite event is the balance beam. She was 2012 U.S. all-around champion and floor exercise silver medalist in the last Olympics. I always liked gymnastics and she is fun to watch and really good at it because she started when she was 4.  I think that she is the coolest person in the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  She participated in the 2012 London Olympics, and in a lot of other competitions that I don’t know about (summer Olympics).
