        Hi Liz—thanks for the read. Years back, cheers used to be all the rage before our soccer games . . . they'd go on and on! It was great. Yep, cheerleading is huge in the states. There are some amazing athletes at the top levels competing in tournaments/overlap with gymnastics.

        You have compiled an interesting list. Cheerleading is not big in the UK, but it has increased in popularity in recent years.
