KidzPlex gymnasts Kayli Plantiko, left, and Sierra Huseby, right, both dealt with nagging injuries during this season. Plantiko’s ankle hurt every time she landed on the vault and the floor exercise — her two best events. Huseby’s back bothered her, especially on dismounts, but she still won a state title on the uneven bars.

No pain, no gain

Nagging injuries can’t keep pair of KidzPlex gymnasts from having successful seasons

Behind her smile there’s a grimace ready to overpower that smile whenever pain grips her right ankle.
With that taped right ankle as impenetrable as a plaster cast, Kayli Plantiko keeps competing and accepts pain will be the part of competition.
Kayli, 15, is a powerful, 5-foot, 1-inch gymnast for KidzPlex Gymnastics.
