    Kelsey LaCroix thought about what it would be like to participate in the Olympics when she was a young gymnast.
    She assumed any chance to participating in the Olympics ended when she made the decision to stick with cheerleading over gymnastics at age 11.
    That decision worked out well, though, as she recently helped Kentucky win a third straight national cheer title. But now she’s going to the Olympics — along with other member of UK’s national cheerleading team.
