CKW LUXE is proud to announce that Ian Gunther is our Fireball Award honoree. This award goes to an exceptional youth athlete. The winner of this award represents the meaning of teamwork, determination, and passion for the sport.
An artistic gymnast working toward his Olympic dream, Ian has turned what started as childhood gymnastics lessons into his great passion. Since the age of four and a half, Ian has focused on being the best he can be at his chosen sport. He has received numerous national medals and awards and has been on the Junior Olympic Development Team twice. In 2017, he took the gold medal on rings and parallel bars at the Junior Olympic Nationals meet. A level 10 artistic gymnast at Cypress Academy of Gymnastics, Ian is also team captain. A member of the class of 2018 at Westside High School, where his favorite subject is Science, Ian maintains excellent grades. He is also a member of the National Honor Society and the Westside Engineering and Geosciences Academy. As proof that hard work pays off, Ian has just been accepted to Stanford, where, along with being a freshman, he’ll be on the Stanford Gymnastics Team.
CKW LUXE would like to wish Ian well at Stanford and thank him for being a role model to other young athletes.
