DeWitt's Jordyn Wieber has a week of training camp left before heading to the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
She left for Houston from the Capital Region International Airport Wednesday morning, and will be there for a week before heading to London to compete on Team USA Gymnastics.
Wieber's coach John Geddert says there is still a lot of work to do before the games.
"We're doing a dress rehearsal for the Olympics," he says. "The team will be there, all five team members and three alternates will be meeting up, set line-up for competition, compete in the right order, make sure we get all the bugs out of our performance."
Wieber will have a chance to get checked into the Olympic Village once she gets to London. The games start July 27th.
You can help the Wieber family see Jordyn perform in person.
Domino's on East State Road in DeWitt is donating 50-percent of Wednesday's sales to the Wieber family, to help pay for the trip to London.
The manager says they'd been busy all day, with people stopping to buy pizza or just to donate. They were open until one a.m.
You can also find Jordyn's face on boxes of Kellogg's Corn Flakes, now being sold at grocery stores all over the place. She actually tweeted about this a couple of days ago.
Seven other Olympic athletes are also featured as part of Team Kellogg's.
