ROCKFORD, Ill. -- A gymnast from Rockford is competing again after losing a leg to cancer.

Kate Foster's dad posted a recent competition on Facebook.

Kate steadily performs her beam routine doing spins, back walkovers and jumps - all with a prosthetic leg.

She was diagnosed with leukemia in 2011 and lost her leg to a cancer-related infection.

Kate is now back in the gym training five days a week.
