Posted on Friday, March 8, 2013 2:31pm

Young gymnasts from around the country, and even overseas are headed to Ventura County this weekend for a major gymnastics tournament.

More than 700 gymnasts between the ages of seven, and 16 are headed to California Lutheran University, in Thousand Oaks for the Malibu Coast Challenge.

They’re coming from throughout California, Arizona, and Nevada, but there are also some competitors from as far away as Texas, Mexico, and the Ukraine.

Organizers say some of these young competitors could be part of the next wave of Olympic gymnasts.
