Gymnast, 10, Gets Up At 5.30AM And Trains For 30 Hours Each Week To Be 'The Best'

A young girl has been putting in the hard graft during lockdown and would put most gym-goers to shame.

Lyza Brooks Mosier, 10, reportedly 'fell in love' with fitness last year and her mum says she now works out five days a week for a total of 30 hours.

Lyza, from Georgia, United States, started gymnastics when she was just four years old, and six years on it doesn't look like she plans on quitting any time soon.

Speaking about her impressive athletic ability, her mother Jill Mosier said her little girl is determined to be the best.

The 45-year-old said: "Lyza is completely self motivated as she wants to become the best of the best.

"She stays on top of her game by getting up at 5.30am to train - we have set up all sorts of gymnastics stations in our storage room where she would go for hours to workout.

"She aims to be the best gymnast she can possibly be, nothing will get in her way."

But while some claim that her workout routines might be a little excessive, Jill assures people that it's all down to Lyza's determination and that she has never pushed her.

Jill added: "She loves hearing that she inspires others however we also get the occasional mean person as well who say we shouldn't make her train so much.

"But I assure you, we have nothing to do with this - I have four kids and Lyza begs to workout.

"I am so proud of her and I can't wait for her to achieve her dreams and become an elite gymnast."

But Lyza isn't the only young athlete to be wowing people with her abilities.

Just last month, skating prodigy Gui Khury, from Brazil, shocked the world when he performed a 1080 spin on a vert ramp - breaking a record set by skateboard legend Tony Hawk 21 years ago.

The incredible feat was posted on the 11-year-old's Instagram account by his parents.

It's been more than two decades since legend Hawk performed the fabled 900, the very first by a pro skater.

Hawk was 31 when he landed the trick after 10 failed attempts at the 1999 X Games, more than nine years before Gui was even born. Not even a twinkle in his dad's eye.
