Sherrie Martin, often called “The 60 Year Old Gymnast” doesn’t save gymnastics for the mats only. Who has a gymnastics career that spans 40 years? Sherrie Martin does. Sherrie competed at gymnastics meets in 5 cities in 2019 at the age of 60. Forty years after her last collegiate competition, Sherrie now uses her gymnastics skills to run her circus, incorporates them into her comedy shows, competes AAU and USAG meets against gymnasts as young as her granddaughter, and surprises real estate clients. Sherrie is the only Realtor you’ll find who will celebrate the sale of your house with a happy dance and some back flips in your living room. Sherrie Martin links: www.sherriemartin.com
