A gymnast from Aurora heading to the Summer Olympics got big sendoff before leaving for London.

Anna Li made the women's squad as an alternate.

Well-wishers from her former school, as well as friends and family, all showed up to the Eola Community Center to send her off to the Games in style Monday night.

At the age of 23, Li is one of few post-collegiate gymnasts to make it to the Olympics.

The London Olympic Games run July 27 through August 12.
