The Wider Image: In Simone Biles' path, a fearless young gymnast learns new 2020 routine
Wendy Hilliard, a Hall of Fame rhythmic gymnast and founder of the Wendy Hilliard Gymnastics Foundation and Zariah Hayes watch gymnasts at the gymnastics foundation in New York, U.S., December 2, 2019. "Trying to keep these kids together has been what I've been working the hardest to do," said Hilliard, who rolled out "Zoom" classes as the pandemic sent families indoors and later found spaces across the New York City metro area for her students, including a tennis court in the Bronx and a gym in Yonkers. Throughout the year, she's fought to find those facilities for her students to keep them competitive and in shape, as more affluent private gyms that serve predominantly white communities have the resources to stay open. "I'm so frustrated that the priority - you know, if you have money, stuff like that, you can have your kids do these extra activities and other kids can't if they're urban kids or they don't have the spaces," said Hilliard. "We've been trying to navigate that part." REUTERS/Idris Solomon SEARCH "GYMNASTICS SOLOMON" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES
