November 16, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Doctors said Chelsea Werner would always have low muscle tone because she was born with Down syndrome. But as a gymnast who has won the Special Olympics national championship four times and now competes with USA Gymnastics, she has totally proved them wrong.

A new Facebook video from the page “The Power of Positivity” highlights Chelsea’s athletic successes and some of her coolest gymnastics moves. Chelsea has earned the “WORLD” title at the Down Syndrome International World Championship and has traveled around the world.


Chelsea is also a model who has participated in New York Fashion Week and Los Angeles Fashion Week.

She has more than 100,000 instagram followers and has been featured in SELF magazine and on USA Today.

Follow her Facebook page here for photos and videos of this inspiring young woman. Like Madeline Stuart, she is shattering stereotypes about people with Down syndrome by following her dreams and not letting anything get in the way.
