7th grader stacks up the wins
Seventh-grader Ryan is a gold medal AAU athlete — in sport stacking.
For the uninitiated, sport stacking (also known as cup stacking or speed stacking) involves stacking 9 or 12 specially designed cups in pre-determined sequences as fast as possible. It tests agility, concentration and quickness.
Over the summer, Ryan participated in the AAU Junior Olympic Games Sport Stacking Championships in Houston. He came away with four gold medals – two individual, one doubles, and one relay team.
