Lafayette to the Olympics?

Three trampolinists who train in Lafayette have excellent chances to make the U.S. Olympic team - Olympics Beat - Times-Picayune - NOLA.com

It's just too bad thatLafayette's Jeff and Leigh Hennessy are not mentioned in this article, since Coach Hennessy established a virtual trampoline dynasty in the 60s through the 80s. His accomplishments in gymnastics and trampolining are many and he is one of the premier figures who made trampolining an Olympic sport. For a number of years, Lafayette was the center of the trampolining world.
