PAXTON -- Hard work by this Kid to Know is paying off in leaps and bounds. Garret Water-Stradt's tumbling skills have taken him all over the globe.

Garret started when he was just 2-years old. He started competing when he was 5. Now, at 17, Garret has two international competitions under his belt. He won a gold medal in England and placed first with a team in Portugal.

When he looks back, he treasures the people, not the trophies. Garret is headed to UI in two years. He wants to go into sports medicine. You can't get a scholarship for trampoline, but he says he'll keep going to the gym if he has time.
