Bronx gymnasts mount winning team for Empire State Games

Bronx athletes are gearing up for the gold in the Empire State Games in Rochester.

Three Bronx students round out the gymnastics team, including 13-year-old John Orozco. Orozco won the all-around competition last year at the games in Hudson Valley. He walked away with five gold medals and one silver medal. Orozco also earned a spot on the junior Olympic team. John F. Kennedy gymnast Eric Parker and Vdal Cummings are also on the squad.

Opening ceremonies are July 26.
