Albert Pujols' daughter eyeing 2020 Olympics, will be too young

Albert Pujols' illustrious career may soon be overshadowed by his daughter's Olympic accomplishments.

Albert Pujols has accomplished a lot in his Major League Baseball career, including capturing a World Series ring with the St. Louis Cardinals. However, someone else in his family is setting her sights on an athletic feat that her dad has not accomplished: winning an Olympic gold medal. 

Pujols' 9-year-old daughter, Sophia, is aiming for the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo in gymnastics and hoping for a rule change that will allow her to compete, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports. Athletes must be 16 years old to compete in the Olympics, and Pujols will only be 14 years old. 

Last Saturday, she showed that she's well on her way to competing for that gold medal by placing first in a meet in St. Louis. Pujols was in attendance, and he and his wife could not have been more proud.
