Does gymnastics make you shorter?

i have been doing gymnastics for 12 years. i am 13 years old. but right now i am the shortest person in my class. this is because of gymnastics. the main reason gymnastics makes you short is because you are always pounding of you bones and muscles. on floor you do a lot of tumbleing, of vault you run a lot. all of these contribute to making you shorter. the other thing is all of the work that you do like conditioning because you have to work out so much. this is seen as very bad by doctors because you are delaying your growth. but good my gymnast because shorter equels faster, smaller, and lighter Yes, like basketball makes you taller. Joke. I am a 14-year-old compulsory gymnast (I started late) and I am medium-short compared to my peers at school. I'm 5' 2". In gymnastics, I am the tallest on my team, although most are younger. I have stunted growth patterns due to eating problems and may never reach my expected adult height. Like anything you do for long periods of time from a young age, gymnastics does affect your body. Also, tall girls may have difficulties and quit.
