Should accept the invintation to go into the Olympics after college?
I'm about the same height as you, so I'd consider your height average, since a lot of others I know are the same height as well. =D I don't think gymnastics stunts your growth. I mean, I know some gymnasts who are a lot taller than me. In fact, maybe all of the extra exercise is making you taller. If your parents and grandparents are about the same height or shorter than you, your height is probably mostly genetics.
Could you see the Summer Olympics in Minneapolis, Minnesota? Why or why not?
genetics is an issue
your ethnicity and race is also an issue...
your gender is also an issue
sadly, these are required to determine what is normal for your height vis a vis weight...
What kind of training do you have to have to be on the olympic equestrian team?
assuming you are a girl, you are taller than average. not sure about ladies weight though, you have to look it up on the BMI chart. but since you said it's all muscle weight, you are healthy.
and to clarify things, gymnastics, or any other sports for that matter, will not stunt your growth. it may even cause you to grow taller (bball, swimming, etc). however it has been found that shorter people do better in gymnastic because of the height and gravity stuff... something like that.
