Congratulations to DeWitt's Jordyn Wieber and the rest of her Fierce Five teammates---

They will be inducted into the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame as the Class of 2013.

The event will take place August 15-18, during 2013 U.S. Championships and USA Gymnastics National Congress and Trade Show in Hartford, Connecticut.

The girls made history during last summer's Olympic Games in London, when they won team gold for United States for the second time ever. The Magnificent Seven first accomplished that feat in 1996 during the Olympic Games in Atlanta.

The 2007 World Championship teams for artistic gymnastics and tumbling will also be inducted into the Class of 2013 Hall of Fame.

USA Gymnastics is celebrating 50 years this year. Milestones for the sport and the achievement of its athletes will also be recognized during the weekend.
