Olympic athletes inspire budding gymnasts in Brooklyn

Gymnasts who competed in the Rio Olympics have inspired young hopefuls in Brooklyn.



The budding gymnasts say they practice hours to be the best they can.



Some even practice three hours a day, three times a week.



The gymnasts know that getting to the Olympics requires sacrifice as well as sweat.



Many are now training for a competition in New York in January.
