I believe height only holds a gymnast back.
Not a fan of expressions like hold a gymnast back or they are behind.
Their trajectory is their own.
A kid who gets injured and is out for a bit is not now behind, their trajectory has taken a pause.
A growth spurt happens, even short gymnasts can have a growth spurt. It just put them “behind” or hold them “back”. They just ave a period of adjustment.
