Sierra Huseby is not your typical 11-year-old girl. Huseby’s love for gymnastics has given her a passion to chase in her life. In addition to being a good gymnast, Huseby is also a good long jumper, having won the standing long jump at the Hershey’s Track and Field Games for Colorado earlier this month.
