Former Olympian Savannah Thompson, who owns Hangtime TNT Gymnastics in Scott, is leaving the USA Gymnastics Championships in Greensboro, North Carolina, with the gold. 

Thompson beat out her fellow competitors in the Senior Trampoline division. 

The decorated gymnast, formerly known as Savannah Vinsant, competed in the 2012 Olympic Games in London before briefly retiring and opening Hangtime TNT Gymnastics. 

Thompson returned to her roots and started training four months prior to the competition this weekend.

Nicole Ahsinger, of Lafayette, placed second in the Senior Trampoline division. Ahsinger competed in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio.
