Changing Futures Through Gymnastics: Jamaica
For over 15 years, Nishida Shin has taught gymnastics in Jamaica, a country with little history of this sport. Aside from paid lessons, he also runs free classes for kids from poor areas where crime is common. Nishida wanted to give these children a different goal. One such boy was Daniel Williams, who began training with Nishida at 8 and went to the World Championships at 20. He's now a coach, training the next generation of athletes. Meet the team shaping a new future for Jamaica's children.
