The picture is of 9-year-old Sophia Pellitta. Sophia wanted her mother to enter this picture of her doing a split because she's proud of the accomplishment. It took a while for her to be able to do it.
"This is her third year of gymnastics," her mother, Deana, said. "She especially enjoys the balance beam and floor routines. She has dreams of Olympic gold for sure ... 2020 here she comes!"
The picture was taken at her class at the Newtown Athletic Club.
The 10 finalists brought in more than 120 votes, and Pellita's picture got 37 percent of that total. The runner up, Ed Campbell's photo of a track competition, got 24 percent.
As the winner, Pellitta wins a $100 gift card. Congratulations to all our future Olympians, and their photographers!
