The World Team Trials took place September 15-18 at the Historic Municipal Auditorium . Sixteen men and 15 women competed in the World Team Trials in hopes of earning a coveted spot on the World Championships Team . On the men 's side , 40 % of the athlete's score from the John Hancock u.s. Gymnastics Championships and 60% of the total score from the World Team Trials were used to dete rmine t he final ran ki ng s. In other word s, the athletes competed in fou r separate all-around competitions and consistency was the key! With an average age of slightly over 24 years, the USA men's team looks strong. Plus four of the members are veterans of World Championships events and t he other three are first-timers, a good mix! Blaine Wilson and John Roethlisberger hung on to their first and second place standings from the John Hancock U.S. Gymnastics Championships, and will lead the U.S. team at t he World Championships in Tianjin, China, October 8-16. Blaine, who will compete in his third World Championships, said, "Our team looks good. We've got a lot of guys who are good. They did n't miss many ro utines tonight." Two-time Olympian Roethlisberger said, "This is my sixth World Championships team and this one is special because of the tough year I had with my knee injury. People were questioning whether I could come back so it's good to be able to do well. I put my heart into it (making the team) and it's very rewarding." Nineteen-year-old Yewki Tomita moved up from seventh in the all-around at Championships to third in the final rankings, grabbing his first chance to compete at a World Championships. "I felt like I had to redeem myself from Championships," said Tomita. "I told myself that I could have one mistake per competition but I used them all up at Championships. I knew I had to go out and hit all my routines at World Team Trials. It's a great honor to make the World Team, it's a really big deal to me." Yewki's father and coach, Yoichi, was named assistant coach to the World Championships team along with Vitaly Marinitch who coaches at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. 1976 Olympic medalist Peter Kormann is the head coach of the team. Team Texaco-Houston Gymnastics Academy's Sean Townsend finished fourth in the final rankings, making his first World Team as well. Townsend, 20, said, "I feel great. It's my first dream goal come true." When asked about the team Sean said, 'This could be the team that brings home a medal. It's too bad that Jason (Gatson) can't be on the team but we'll use what we have and do the best we can." Team Texaco-USOTC's Chris Young, 26, earned his first spot on a World Championships team by finishing fifth in the overall ran kings. Young moved up from eighth after Champion-ships, partly due to his great performances on pommel horse (9.65) and high bar (9.725) during the final round of World Team Trials. After five rounds of competition during finals of World Team Trials, Chris had moved into third in the rankings. He finished on his weakest event, rings,

and almost sLipped out of fifth when he fell on his dismount and scored onLy a 7.90. He said, '1 made the mistake of Looking at the scoreboard and seeing that I was in third place after the fifth round of competition. It put added pressure on me during my rings routine." When asked how he feLt making the World Team he said, "It's awesome. It's one of the best feelings I've ever had in gymnastics." According to the selection procedures the Men's Program Committee could select the sixth athlete to place on the team in order .to help any weak areas that could enhance the overall team. The committee selected Stephen McCain, who actually finished sixth in the rankings, to be added to the World Team and Jay Thornton, who was seventh, to be the alternate. Both gymnasts from Team TexacoUSOTC were thrilled with the decision. Twenty-five-year-old McCain said, "I've poured my heart and soul in gymnastics and this is definitely the most special World Team I've been on." McCain was ninth all-around after Championships and moved up three spots to sixth in the finals rankings. He will compete in his third World Championships and added, "I've learned a lot about staying in the game. I think the old McCain would have packed it in after Championships but I kept my head down and just kept going!" Thornton, who turned 25 on Sept. 9, said, "I'm delighted to be on the team. I'm disappointed that I didn't place a little higher but I think we're going to do great at World Championships and I'm behind the team 100%. I'll train hard and be ready in case I'm needed." Many guys were in the hunt of the World Championships team but fell just short of the seven-man squad. BYU's Guard Young, who was fourth after Championships, fell to eighth in the final ranking. Team Texaco-USOTC's Brett McClure was third after Championships but fell to 11th in the final rankings. Another USOTC gymnast and 1996 Olympian, John Macready, finished in ninth place. Macready is coming back from shoulder surgery and is eager to get back in the gym for more training so that he's more prepared in 2000. Talented Paul Hamm moved from 11th place after Championships to 10th in the final rankings. Hamm, 16, shows great promise for the future of USA men's gymnastics. His double layout, full out on floor was quite impressive as well as his pommel horse routine which consistently scored a 9.40-9.60 at Championships and Trials. He will be one to watch in the future. On the women's side, 30% of the athlete's score from the John Hancock U.S. Gymnastics Championships and 70"1. of the total score from the World Team Trials were used to determine the final rankings. Kristen Maloney and Vanessa Atler, who finished first and second at the 1999 John Hancock U.S. Gymnastics Championships, did not compete at the World Team Trials. petitioned directly onto the World Team because of their results in the 1998 and 1999 John Hancock U.S. Gymnastics Championships, and the 1999 American Classic.

the Championships with a stress fracture in her right shin while 17-year-old Atler competed with a sore left ankle. Kathy Kelly, Senior Women's Program Di rector of USA Gymnastics said, "Kristen and Vanessa need to be careful in their final preparation for the World Championships. By training smart, they will be in their peak condition to perform at the highest level fo r the USA." With two spots already fi lled on the World Team, the trials began to select the four gymnasts and one alternate who would make up t he rest of the team. After preliminary competition at the World Team Trials, 18-year-old Jennie Thompson was in the lead, scoring a 9.531 on vault, 9.537 on bars, 9.637 on beam and a 9.475 on floor. Thompson, from Cincinnati Gymnastics said, "I was trying to get comfortable with the crowd and the equipment. I was happy to hit my routines." Hilrs Elise Ray, who was in sixth place after Championships, moved up to second with Alyssa Beckerman, Morgan White and Jamie Dantzscher rounding out the top five. After the preliminary competition, Thompson petitioned to be admitted onto the World Team due to illness. She had an upper respiratory infection with acute sinusitis. Her petition was accepted, so the finals competition selected the remaining three gymnasts and one alternate for the World Team . During the final all-around competition, 17-yearold Ray came on stronger than ever, hitting all four events and scoring a 9.256 on vault, 9.775 on bars, 9.637 on beam and a 9.625 on floor. Ray, who showed incredible leg extension, toe point and overall poise on every event, finished with the highest all-around score at the World Team Trials and earned a spot on her first World Championships Team. "It feels wonderful," said Ray. "I came in and gave it all I had. This has been a long ti me goal of mine to make a World Team." Following Elise was SCArs J ea nette Anto lin, who sho wed many new skills and an enthusiasm to match! Jeanette, 17, had to sit out of Championships due to an injury, but proved she was ready to head to China and compete in her first World Championships. She said, "I'm th ri lled beyond words. It was disappointing in 1997 to have to sit and watch the World Championships as the alternate. I'm definitely ready to go and compete." Jeanette showed some innovative skills in her routines including a layout Yaeger and a double front pike half out dismount on bars, a double layout punch front on floor, and on vault she's the only American doing a round off onto the board, If, turn onto the horse, piked front half salto off. Her coach Don Peters said, "I was extremely pleased with her performance. Every routine she did was new. Having been injured and missing Championships, Jeanette didn't have an opportunity to perform the routines prior to Trials. She handled the pressure very well." When asked about the women's team, Peters said, "I think we have a shot at a medal. It won't be easy because the competition is tough but I think we have a shot!" Cincinnati Gymnastics' Alyssa Beckerman, 18, thought her chances of a spot on the World NOVEMBER / DE C EMBER

Championships team were lost when she fell from beam on her last event, scoring an 8.825. However, Jamie Dantzscher who was in fourth place behind Alyssa, also had problems on beam and scored a 9.050 which allowed Beckerman to maintain her third place ranking and earn a spot on the team. Beckerman said, "Making the team is big. It's what I've dreamed of." Unfortunately, a fe w days after the competition, Alyssa was diagnosed with a small st ress fracture in her wrist and t he doctors recommended that she allow the wrist to fully heal so that she's prepared for competitions during the Olympic year. Seventeen-year-old Dantzscher, who qualified as the alternate, will now compete on the World Championships team and 16-year-old Morgan White, who finished fifth overall, will now travel to China as the alternate. Dantzscher is from Gliders, while White trains at Cincinnati Gymnastics. Kelli Hill was named the head coach for the women's team and Donna Strauss the assistant coach. With an average age of 17, the U.S. World Team looks strong. Coach Hill said, "I'm excited and honored to be the head coach of the World Team and work with such a talented group of athletes and coaches. Our team should do very well!" Besides naming the World Team , another highlight ofthe event was seeing 1996 Olympic gold and silver medalist Amy Chow, 21, back in action. Amy said, "I had a good time and that's what matters. I'm very happy to put it all together after ankle surgery (she had a bone chip removed and a ligament reattached just nine weeks prior to World Team Trials). My ankle is getting better every day and hopefully I'll be back to 100% very soon."

â&#x20AC;˘ Congratulations are in order far several J.O. Team members who chose to move into the Elite program and were not able to attend camp: Taryn Humphrey and Amanda Stroud (Great American Gymnastics Express) who qualified to U.S. Championships and Lori Winn (Dynamo-OK) who qualified to U.S. Classic). We would also like to acknowledge several other members of the JO National Team who were unable to attend the camp due to school commitments: Ashley Ellsberry (Queen City), Bridgette Glass (Golden Gate), Christy Linder (Tumble City) and Lindsey Miner (Champion-CO). The Team, staff, and personal cooches were invited to train the first day at the beautiful new "dream gym" of Tom and Lori Forster's Aerials Gymnastics. It gave the athletes an opportunity to work in a "state of the art" gym, with all the training tools needed to work on more advanced skills. A thousand thanks go out to the Forster's for sharing all their "toys" with us! In addition to the three days of training, the athletes also attended informative Nutrition and Sport Psychology sessions, while their personal coaches had sessions on coaching techniques with the camp staff as well as a session with a USOTC Sports Psychologist. As always, the Olympic Training Center provided an inspirational setting for these aspiring athletes to learn, meet new friends and have fun . GYM UPDATE (ontinued on page 43

Introducing the Newest Grip on the Bars! (j)

~~

Designed and manufactured with assistance from National Team Coaches, the Just Right by Gibson is the newest idea in Ladies Uneven Bar Grips. The Just Right is cut slightly narrower for great contact with the bar and reduces side to side rolling of the grip for athletes with smaller hands The single buckle design assures a firm, tight fit at the wrist, and eliminates the constant adjustment necessary with velcro strap grips.
