Tomas Minc, a junior at B-CC High School, is a member of the DMT (Double Mini Trampoline) National Team and will be competing next month , in November, at the 2021 World Trampoline & Tumbling Championship in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Tomas and his partner at that time, won the Synchronized Trampoline competition for their age group (13-14 y.o.) at WAGC (World Age Group Competition) in St Petersburg, Russia in 2018.
Per a 2018 KidsPost article, Tomas practices about 18 to 20 hours a week at the Rockville location of the Dynamite Gymnastics Center. If you’re unfamiliar with DMT, the same article describes it as when “a gymnast races down the runway, bounces on the front part of a trampoline, does a flip and lands on the back part of the trampoline and does another aerial trick.”
Prior to B-CC, he attended Westland Middle School, where he also played soccer.
Northwest High School senior Kayla DiCello secured a spot on the 2021 U.S. Women’s Gymnastics World Championship Team.
Yesterday DiCello was announced along with Leanne Wong, Konnor McClain, and eMjae Frazier as members of Team USA.
Earlier this summer she made the Olympic team as an alternate and participated in the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
DiCello practices gymnastics at Gaithersburg’s Hills Gym off of Lindbergh Drive and has represented the U.S. over a half dozen times as a USA National Team member.
As a sophomore, DiCello accepted a full athletic scholarship to the University of Florida, where she’ll be headed after this school year.
