Madison Kocian Instagram: The Photos You Need to See

 

She may be little, but Madison Taylor Kocian is a big name when it comes to the world of gymnastics. Born on June 15, 1997, the 19-year-old began her gymnastics career in 2003, when she was just six, at the WOGA gym in Plano, Texas. Gearing up for the Olympic Trials, the Texas native trained 35-hours a week under Cecile and Laurent Landi. She may not be vying for an all-around medal this summer, but Kocian is considered the US's secret weapon on bars, which will come in handy as that's the event Team USA is weakest on.
