Two Asian American girls look to make USA Gymnastics' Team

Anna Li and Kyla Ross are two Asian American girls, out of 15 women gymnasts, attempting to make the U.S. Olympic team.

At 23, Li is the second-oldest of the female gymnasts at the trials. She is 5 foot 4 and 118 pounds. Her history of cringe-inducing injuries includes two surgically repaired broken feet that each bear two metal pins, and her relative lack of versatility could diminish her chances.

Yet Li has surprised many, getting farther than she imagined a couple of years ago when — her competitive career seemingly over.

Coached by her Olympic medalist parents, she has worked incredibly hard to get this close.

Kyla Ross trains at Gym-Max in Costa Mesa, California, where she is coached by Jenny Zhang and Howie Liang. She is a United States Junior National Team member, the 2011 Covergirl Classic Junior Champion, and the 2009 & 2010 US Junior National Champion.
