EAST GREENWICH, RI (WPRI) — This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Heroes are Aidan Cuy and Aidan Giusti.
The Aim High Academy gymnasts recorded their best scores at their final Junior Olympics Gymnastics Championships. Giusti, a senior at North Kingstown earned 5th place in overall competition with Cuy, a senior at Hendricken taking home a Silver medal with his 2nd place finish.
“It was an emotional roller coaster, I would say. I really wasn’t expecting it,” Cuy said. “It was a lot more than I could have hoped to get in my last year.”
The pairs success over the years, earning them the opportunity to compete in college. Cuy will head to William and Mary in the Fall, while Giusti is still trying to decide his future home.
“That will be a dream come true,” Giusti said. “I’ve always watched NCAA’s and the college kids when I was younger on TV and I’ve always dreamt of reaching that point so now that I’m finally making that transition, I’m ecstatic.”
