Two Brighton youth took first place at the national competition for gymnastics this summer. Middle school students Justin Simmering and Sydney Clark train at Ide Gymnastics in Fairfield and compete across the country year-round. Simmering won the all-around champion designation at nationals in St. Joseph, Missouri while Clark took first in vault and second in the remaining events. Simmering hopes to make it to the Olympics one day.
