Heaven Walker

Heaven Walker has returned to gymnastics this season after a back injury sidelined the talented Michigan City senior the last three years.

MICHIGAN CITY — The effects of an upper back injury that forced Heaven Walker to give up gymnastics before high school remain, but after three years away, the Michigan City senior had to give the sport one last try.

“I really, truly enjoy the sport,” Walker said as the gym was being set up Wednesday for Thursday’s season opener. “I’ve just always been interested. My brother and I used to go downstairs and flip off the couch. It’s my senior year, I’m just going to go all out. My mom and grandma are very supportive of it. To me, the pain is worth it.”
