We've long been fans of wheel gymnastics and we're thrilled to see Chicago's young wheel athletes compete on an international level.   My own kids have studied circus arts with most of the team and we've watched these kids grow up over the past 3 years.   This is the first year the World Championships will be hosted outside of Europe!
