U.S. Olympic gymnast Grace McCallum is bringing both her skills and her Catholic faith to the Tokyo games in July.
McCallum does not travel anywhere without her rosary and a special cross from her grandmother, the Central Minnesota Catholic magazine reported in 2019.
“She travels with those things to kind of bring her peace and calm,” her mother, Sandy McCallum, told the magazine.
At just 18 years old, McCallum is one of six women competing in the Tokyo summer Olympic games this year. She will be competing in the team gymnastics events along with Simone Biles, Sunisa Lee, and Jordan Chiles.
