Jennifer Bricker is an American acrobat and aerialist and the sister to gymnast Dominique Moceanu. Bricker was born without legs but that did not stop her from being the first handicapped high school tumbling champion in the state of Illinois. She also competed in the 1998 AAU Junior Olympics (power tumbling), placing fourth and received the U.S. Tumbling Association's Inspiration Award that same year. Bricker defies the norm of what it is to be an acrobat and aerialist because she can do anything.Uploaded Sep 14, 2016
