Going for the Gold with Gia Griffith, FLVS Athlete

Friday morning, thousands of athletes stepped onto Toyko’s Olympic floor, ready to represent their country and showcase their incredible talent and hard work to the world. For many of them, the Olympic Games are the most significant moment in their lives! 

Each of these athletes has a story to tell, from the starting line of their sport’s journey to their latest victory, and every challenge overcome along the way. Florida Virtual School (FLVS) is honored to be home to amazing athletes throughout Florida, including 6th grade FLVS Flex student Gia Griffith! 

At just 3-years-old, Gia found her passion for sports when she started gymnastics and karate. With only weeks to prepare, she entered in her first gymnastics competition and earned a spot in the top ten – an amazing feat for a young rookie! When we asked Gia who inspired her to begin sports, she explained that her mother is also an athlete and bodybuilder. “I want to be like my mom!”
