Madison Wigginton got her start in gymnastics at the age of three as she was full of energy and was always climbing on things and bouncing off the walls. Her mom took her to the YMCA for tumbling classes at the age of one and then started her in recreational classes as soon as she was old enough at Gymnastics Olympica. After two classes, Madison was invited to join pre-team.

Madison began competing in the fall of 2018 as a level 3. At her first meet, the NAWGJ SoCal Judges Cup, Madison won the bars title and came in third on floor and in the all around. Madison had her best meet of her season at the Club Champion's Wild West Invitational where she won all four events and the all around with a 38.100. One month later at the SoCal State Championships, Madison won the bars title and took fifth all around. Madison competed two more meets of level 3 during the winter/spring 2019 season. At the LA Classic Invitational in January, Madison won all four events and the all around. Madison concluded her level 3 season at the New Orleans Jazz Invitational where she won the beam title and came in second on bars, floor, and in the all around. During the summer of 2019, Madison participated in TOPs Testing and made the TOPs National Diamond Team as one of the top 50 seven year olds in the country.

Competing level 4 during the 2019-2020 season, Madison began her season at the NAWGJ SoCal Judges Cup. Here, Madison won the bars title. At her next meet, the Winner's Invitational, Madison earned gold medals on floor and the all around as well as silver medals on vault and bars. In November at the SoCal State Championships, Madison finished third on floor. Madison finished up her level 4 season in January 2020 at the LA Classic Invitational where she won the floor title as well as second on beam and fourth all around. Madison had planned to participate in TOPs Testing during the summer of 2020, but the TOPs season was canceled due to COVID-19.

Madison began her optional career as a level 6 in January 2021 at the Biles Invitational. Here, Madison finished seventh all around. Six weeks later at the SoCal State Championships, Madison earned a silver medal on beam as well as fifth on bars and in the all around. From state, Madison qualified to the Region 1 Championships where she concluded her season with a win on bars with a 9.750 and third place finish on floor. Madison participated in TOPs Testing during the summer of 2021. From state testing, Madison qualified to TOPs National Testing from where she made the TOPs National A Team as one of the top 100 8-10 year olds in the nation.

Currently, Madison trains 27.5 hours per week under coaches Laura McCallum Minasyn and Arsen Minasyan at Gymnastics Olympica. Madison's goal for her 2022 level 7 season is to score a 38.00 in the all around. In the future, Madison's goal is to represent Team USA at the Olympics and then open her own gym one day.
