Photos: Olympic Sendoff: Alex Naddour

Gilbert’s USA Youth Fitness Center put on an all-American celebration Tuesday night for gymnast Alex Naddour, who leaves for London this week in preparation for the 2012 Olympics. More than 300 people showed up to cheer on their hometown athlete. Earlier this summer, Naddour was named an alternate to the U.S. Gymnastics team. As such, he’s been training this month at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs and will be in London should he be needed to replace a team member due to injury.
