Eval: Usually gymnasts are more concerned about exceeding height and weight norms, not falling below them. Because height and weights for competitive gymnasts tends to be low already, i would consult with your physician for medical evalation. Depending on the cause for low height/ weight the physician may recommend working with a nutritionist or other measures.
