All eyes turned to Minnesota when St. Paul native Suni Lee clinched the gold medal in gymnastics at the 2020 Olympics. Her win also solidified Midwest Gymnastics’ position as a place for top-notch athletes to train. Jess Graba established the Little Canada studio with his twin brother, Jeff, in 1995; today, Graba runs it with his wife, Alison Lim. Graba is still working with one of Lee’s teammates on the U.S. National Team. “You really can pick a seemingly unrealistic goal,” Graba says, “and with enough hard work, dedication, and cooperation, make it happen.”
