“I KNEW from the time I was eight years old that I wanted to be an Olympian,” said Kim Chace-May recently from her DeFuniak Springs home. Little did she know then that she would realize her dream, not once, but twice. After traveling extensively throughout the southeastern United States performing in countless events, Chace-May, with her parents by her side as coaches, qualified for the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, then-West Germany. Going into the games, she was the third-ranked gymnast in America and 60th in the world. According to Chace-May, she was the first Florida female to perform as a gymnast in the Olympics.
