Like many other children his age, 12-year-old Jimmy Hawksworth of Mokena enjoys being active in sports. Unlike his peers, however, Hawksworth spends an average of three-and-a-half hours per day, five days a week practicing his prefered sport, gymnastics, and that doesn’t include the time it takes to drive to the training facility in Downers Grove.
