Published 6:18 am Friday, May 18, 2012

A special 30-minute program documenting the success of the 2011-12 Austin girls gymnastics and dance teams will air at 5 p.m. Sunday. Produced by KSMQ-TV, “Jump! Austin Sports Extra” will feature in-depth interviews with student athletes and the coaches from each squad.

“These are sports that are followed by a dedicated group of fans, but many viewers might not be as familiar with them as with other sports,” said Eric Olson, KSMQ president and CEO. “We wanted to let folks know about the time and effort that these students put in to compete successfully in these sports.”

The program will also be available on the station website, www.ksmq.org, and on its YouTube channel. For those that miss the initial airing, KSMQ will rebroadcast the program on:
