I know there is a lot of debate on this and I have my own thoughts but I am wondering what others think. I have been watching a lot of college gymnastics lately and notice almost all of the gymnasts are very short for being adult age. Do you think this is due in some way to all the athletic activity actually stunting their grown? Or that as gymnasts become higher levels the shorter ones tend to succeed more so that is what we end up seeing more of? Also when these athletes retire either college or elite level do many of them have late growth spurts? I think it is even stranger now days as people in general seem to be getting taller, I know the short little girl gymnast body was popular in years past and now more body types are accepted but why are all these college women so short?
