Over the past couple of years, USA Gymnastics has become a larger and more diverse organization. With the Robert Y. Colarossi President of USA addition of the trampoline, tumbling, Gymnastics and sports acrobatics disciplines, not only has the number of members increased, but the personality of the organization has also changed. USA Gymnastics now truly represents the broad based opportunities in the sport.

I

n keeping with this progress, USA Gymnastics has recently undertaken a change in its logo and branding strategy. Developed in conjunction with Indianapolis-based Cranfill and Company, USA Gymnastics will unveil a new logo and brand statement at the U.s. Gymnastics Championships. The new logo is designed to reflect the precision, flexibility, and movement that are characteristics of gymnastics. Its red and blue coloring represents the patriotic nature of our organization. Most appropriately, we believe the figure represents the core athlete that participates in every diSCipline within gymnastics. Among the most constructive aspects of gymnastics are the lifetime rewards that the sport encourages. Whether you go on to participate in other sports, cheerleading, dance, or become a doctor, lawyer, or other professional, the fitness and confidence inspired by gymnastics are lifetime qualities that remain with you forever. With this in mind, the branding statement which best reflects these benefits is USA Gymnastics - Begin Here ... Go Anywhere. This simple, yet very powerful message, is one that can be used at all levels of the sport, whether you are a Level 5 gymnast or a World Champion. This branding statement is also incorporated into the logo design, with the legs beginning at a very fine point, and continuing through the arms toward infinite. USA Gymnastics is poised to bring renewed success at the elite level in the next two years. Our current group of national team members represent the deepest level of talent the country and the world have ever seen. With the upcoming World Gymnastics Championships in Anaheim, and the Olympic Games next summer, we are confident this new identity will be reinforced by many medal winning performances.

Will,

It's a

Will, TEN. 0 CLASSIC

501 BLUES

Just imagine grips that fit with the comfort of your oldest, most faded jeans-from the first swing. Consider baby suede padding, COMFY SOFT SWING blue foam insert for those who need a littl e extra softness, a di stinctive wrist strap and you have a 501 BLUES . Most gymnasts want a grip that's soft and easy to break in . They also want them to be durable. The 50 I do es this better than any other grip on the market AND they do it wi th sty le an d good pricing .

The TEN. 0 CLASSIC is the most durable grip on the market. We know - our customers talk. Of course, it takes longer to break-in the CLASSI C grips because of the low stretch factor of the heavy duty leather. In fact , in recent independent laboratory tests the TEN. 0 classic leather was compared to the leath er in other popular grips and was fou nd to w ithstand 18% greater pulling stress . If you are a hard training, big trick gymnast who doesn't like herlhis grips to stretch or doesn't like to buy grips frequently we recommend using THE CLASSIC. Literally thousands of gymnasts do! You will love the baby suede padding, the custom designed web bing for a fresh new look, and the comfy soft swing insert.

Pacific Challenge con~nued from page 10

The Pacific Challenge proved to be an exceptional team building event and another major step in the right direction toward the 2003 World Championships and Pan American Games. The international event, which featured teams from Australia, Canada, and two from the United States, was held March 22, at Cal State Fullerton's Titan Gymnasium. USA dominated the team competition with a 1-2 team finish. USA Team Red: Annia Hatch, Chellsie Memmel, Courtney Kupets, Carly Patterson, Ashley Postell, and Tabitha Vim outdistanced USA Team Blue: Nicole HarTis, Katie Heenan, Terin Humphrey, Nina Kim, Tia Oriando, and Sarah Shire. Canada finished in third and Australia was fourth. Patterson, coming off her recent victory at the Visa American Cup, captured the all-around title. Patterson, who trains at World Olympic Gymnastics Academy in Plano, Texas, posted a score of 37.675. She was followed by fellow American Cup competitors Kupets of Hill's Gymnastics with a 37.50 and Postell of Capital GTC scoring a 37.45. Kupets also posted the highest floor score with a 9.60. Memmel of Salto Gymnastics actually posted the highest all-around score of the meet; however, she was not officially entered in the all-around standings because she did not compete for team score on vault and floor. Chellsie had the highest bar score of the day with a 9.75. Hatch of Stars Gymnastics had the third highest all-around tally, but like Memmel, her allaround score was unofficial. Annia scored a 9.75 on vault to lead that event and tied for second on floor with Parkettes' Oriando. Fellow Parkette gymnast, HarTis, led the way on beam with a 9.675. The 1-2 victory highlighted the concept of "team" that has been the crux of the USA National Team emphasis for this quadrennium. In an event that showcased the current depth of internationally competitive gymnasts in the U.S., it served as a further "Team" building experience for the athletes. Kathy Kelly, Senior Women's Program Director, said, "Following training in the beautiful new WIldfire Gymnastics facility (thanks Bill Callander), the pacific Challenge continued on page 41 ,.,.....!!!!!M!IY.. . ,.......~ ~!'!~II:>,i"'M~!!I!!I~I ,. .

BART CONNER Bart Conner is a three-time Olympian and two-time gold medalist at the 1984 Olympics in team and parallel bars. He's in business with his wife, Olympic Champion Nadia Comaneci, and his former college coach, Paul Ziert, who also serves as his manager. Conner co-owns a gymnastics school, Bart Conner School of Gymnastics in Oklahoma; International GYMNAST magazine; a TV production company, Perfect 10 Productions; and Grips, Etc. Conner has worked as an announcer for several networks and also travels as a public speaker delivering his inspirational message. "I am incredibly proud to have been on that 1984 Olympic team. We were a bunch of guys from different backgrounds, different coaches, different training philosophies, but because we had a common goal, we united. I'll never forget the feeling, as we started our final high bar routines, that if we could hit, we might win the team gold medal. There is nothing like being on a great team of guys who truly support each other. Even today, nearly 20 years later, I can't help but think how fortunate we were to have that experience. Sure, we worked hard to get there, but in order to win a gold medal at the Olympics, the stars and planets have to line up for you, and that day, they did." When asked about the current men's team, Bart said, ''I'm amazed at the level of the performances of the current US. gymnasts. I think we are entering a terrific period for the U.s. men as they build momentum towards the 2003 Worlds and the 2004 OlympicS. The US. team has a great deal of talent, as well as dedicated coaches. 1 anticipate exciting successes for the US. team over the next couple of years."

Tun coaches the boy's team, and they've had many Junior National Team Members and National AllAround Champions. Tun is also broadcaster for NBC sports since 1990, including the upcoming World Championships and Olympic Games. He's-also a motivational speaker for corporations and associations.

"They are the light of my life," said Tim. "I have had so many incredible experiences through the sport of gymnastics, but nothing compares to what I get everyday with my kids. 1 scored a 10.00 at the OlympicS to clinch the medal for the team, but being a Dad is an eleven!" "Both of my kids take and love gymnastics, along with soccer and "T" ball." Regarding the upcoming World Championships, Tim said, "Competing in a Worlds or OlympicS is the ultimate for a gymnast, but to do it at home is a dream come true. The crowd in '84 was amazing, you could feel them pulling along with us-in a word-Awesome! The men and women's teams for 2003 look to be some of the best we have ever had in the USA.

MITCH GAYLORD Mitch earned a silver medal on vault and bronze medals in rings and parallel bars at the 1984 Olympic Games, in addition to his team gold. Mitch started a new career about a year ago in life insurance and estate planning with a well-known firm in Beverly Hills. He's also doing infomercials with Suzanne Somers and appearing on Home Shopping Network once a month. Mitch and his wife Deborah are busy with their three children: Kevin, 9; Madeline, 8; and Bailey, 6. Although all three children are very active, none are involved in gymnastics. Kevin is into snow boarding, skate boarding and basketball. The girls are very active in sports but Madeline is definitely an artist. They're not sure where Bailey is headed yet, but she's full of energy. As for winning the Olympic Gold medal in 1984 Mitch said, "Peter (Vidmar) and I were just at UCLA for Pac 10's and we were remembering how it was for us in 1984. No matter how far away from that moment we get it was still a defining moment in our lives. It was a very special feeling to know that we did something that was historical and had such a positive impact on the community as a whole." He added, "Gymnastics defined me as a person. It proved to me that we're more capable then we ever thought possible. It built character in me that without the sport, I would have never developed. I've been able to use all that I've learned in my career as well as in parenting. That's the greatest gift of all being able to impart some of that wisdom to my kids."

JIM HARTUNG Jim helped his team earn the gold medal at the '84 Olympics. A University of Nebraska graduate, Jim represented the U.S. in many World Championships and World Cup events throughout his career. Jim and his wife Lisa, who is a former gymnast, just celebrated their lO-year anniversary and reside in Nebraska. They have four children: Jim, 8; Nick, 6; Jake, 4; and Hannah, 2. They all do recreational gymnastics and love it. They also do many other activities as well. Jim has made his life in the sport of gymnastics. He was the assistant coach for the World Championships team in 1989. He also helps out at training camps for the national teams. Jim is a brevet judge and, in fact, is scheduled to judge the World Championships this summer in Los Angeles. He also sells gymnastics equipment out of his home so that he can care for his children during the day while his wife works at a local hospital. ''I'm looking forward to the World Championships this summer in Los Angeles. It will be great to go back to the city where we achieved so much success in 1984. The U.S. team is on the rise and I expect good things from them this summer at the World Championships."

SCOTT JOHNSON Scott was a member of the gold medal team at the 1984 Olympic Garnes and a member of the 1988 Olympic Team as well. He has worked in management, marketing, public relations, and sales throughout the years following his athletic retirement. These experiences have served as stepping stones into his future goals of owning a gyrrmastics facility. Scott spent several years working at a gyrrmastics club in Oviedo, Florida, as head coach. "My love and passion for the sport of gyrrmastics will never end, and I truly enjoy . working with young athletes in helping them reach their goals and dreams." Scott will open his own gym later this year in Florida and will offer both recreational and competitive programs. "I am confident that the extensive training I received in the corporate market over the years will be very useful in running my own business. And now I can truly give back to the sport that has been so great to me in the past.~ He said, "It is amazing to me how the sport ~ , of gyrrmastics has progressed in its difficulty requirements and in the quality and strength of our athletes. In the 1980 and 1984 era, we set new standards in skill development and originality from what it was in the past. And ever since that great moment of success in 1984, our teams have maintained that pursuit of excellence and continue to bring the sport new levels. We've made great strides the last several years - just a few more steps and we will reach the top."

PETER VIDMAR Peter won a gold medal on pommel horse as well as in the team competition. He also won the silver medal in the all-around. Peter and his wife Donna have five children. TImothy (named after Tim Daggett) is almost 18 and will enroll in BYU in the fall. He's a former gyrrmast and avid surfer and snowboarder. Christopher, 16, is an accomplished pianist and a very good high school wrestler. Stephen, 14, will be competing as a Class 3 at Jr. Nationals. Kathryn, 12, is soccer crazy and on a few teams. Emily, 9, is competing in trampoline and tumbling and will start competing in gyrrmastics in the fall. Peter spends much of his time on the corporate lecture circuit where he continues to perform for audiences on the pommel horse. His new book was released a few months ago entitled, "Risk, Originality, & Virtuosity, the Keys to a Perfect 10." It's a business / self improvement book. Peter's also the Co-Chair of the U.S. Olympic Committee Summer Sports Summit, a series of workshops designed to help America's medal hopefuls to win gold at Athens in 2004. Peter's also a serious cyclist. "I've competed in 24-hour races and ultra endurance races. I placed second in my age category at the NORBA National Championship Series race at Big Bear, Calif. last year. I lost by two seconds." Peter's also the honorary Co-Chair (along with Bela Karolyi and Mary Lou Retton) of the 2003 World Championships. ''I'm convinced it will be the best ever," said Peter. He added, "I think our U.S. teams will see some serious time on the victory platform."

LlACOURAS CENTER PHILADELPHIA, PA APRIL 11-13, 2003 continued from page 23 Oklahoma's Daniel Furney, a senior from New Braunfels, Texas, captured the all-around title with a score of 56.10. Furney, the 2003 Nissen Emery Award recipient, is now the 14th gymnast in Oklahoma history to win an individual national title. With a sum of 222.600, Head Coach Mark Williams' squad topped its championship score of 219.300 from 2002. Oklahoma's 26-0 record this year placed them in elite company with Ohio State (19%) as the only schools to complete a perfect season. Ohio State, the 2001 national title winners, finished second in this year's competition with a 220.700 score. Penn State secured third with a 219.950 sum, while Michigan (217.850), D1inois (217.125) and Iowa (215.250) rounded out the meet.

Raj Bhavsar of Ohio State placed second in the all-around finals with a 55.300 total. Michigan's Scott Vetere (54.625) was next, followed by Randy Monahan (Ohio State; 54.550), David Eaton (California-Berkeley; 54.475), Oay Strother (Minnesota; 54.150), Justin Laury (Michigan; 53.675) and Dan Gill (Stanford; 53.525). During event finals, Oklahoma's Josh Landis won both the floor exercise (9.675) and pommel horse (9.687). Furney won parallel bars with a 9.475 score to cap a championship weekend for the Sooners. The vault title went to Michigan's Andrew DiGiore, who posted a 9.650 score. In perhaps the most hotly contested event of the day, rings, Penn State's Kevin Tan won the title with a 9.762 to unseat defending national champion Marshall Erwin of Stanford, who placed second with a 9.750 score. Linas Gaveika of Iowa became the 2003 horizontal bar national champion after scoring a 9.712 in the event. Tan, on the heels of his impressive rings performance, placed second with a 9.625 effort.

from Nebraska for third place with a 197.150. The 'Huskers took fourth, while Michigan earned a fifth-place finish, and Utah settled for sixth, as their star athlete, senior Theresa Kulikowski dislocated her shoulder in the first rotation on bars. UCLA, which claimed its fourth national title in the last seven seasons, started strong with a 49.350 on vault to claim the lead after the first rotation. The Bruins never looked back, grabbing the reins of the title with their 49.450, before their spectacular 49.525 beam performance. Coach Valorie Kondas Field's UCLA squad locked up the title with a 49.500 on floor, giving the Bruins the top team score on three of the four events (beam, bars, floor). Only Nebraska produced a higher event score than the Bruins, cranking out a 49.550 on vault, the highest event score of the championships. The 'Huskers added the second-best event scores of the night on beam (49.400) and floor (49.375), but it was not enough to overcome a disastrous bars routine that forced Nebraska to count a fall en route to a 48.800 team score. The slip by the 'Huskers, who had the top score in the prelim rounds, opened the door for Alabama to power into the No.2 spot with a solid all-around performance that included scores of 49.225 or better on all four events, including 49.375 on their final rotation, beam, to hold off Georgia's 49.300 on beam in its final rotation. The Crimson Tide received eight scores of 9.900 or above, including a 9.950 from Ashley Miles un floor. Miles added a 9.900 on vault and posted the only perfect 10.00 of the competition on Thursday afternoon in the same event. Jeana Rice added 9.900 efforts on vault and beam, while Kristin Sterner pitched in two 9.9OOs of her own on bars and beam. Georgia's third-place finish was powered by a 49.350 on bars, a 49.300 on beam, a 49.275 on floor and a 49.225 on vault. Georgia was led by outstanding individual performances from Chelsa Byrd with a 9.950 on vault, a 9.925 on bars and a 9.900 on floor, while Kinsey Rowe added a pair of 9.900 efforts on bars and beam. Nebraska's Richelle Simpson. who won the 2003 NCAA AllAround title on Thursday, produced the top individual performance again on Friday, earning scores of 9.925 or better on all fou r events for an all-around of 39.800. Simpson's performance included a 9.975 on vault, matching Jamie Dantzscher's 9.975 on flooi ~or the top individual effort of the evening. Dantzscher (39.725, all-around) and Nebraska's A.J. Lamb (39.675, all-around) were the only other individuals to score 9.900 or better on all four events.

oontinued from page 31 But the Bruin trio of 2002 NCAA All-Around Champion Dantzscher, 2001 NCAA All-Around Champion Onnie Willis and Kate Richardson provided more than enough firepower to keep the rest of the teams at arm's length. Dantzscher produced scores of 9.950 on bars, 9.900 on beam and 9.900 on vault, while Willis added a 9.925 on beam and a 9.900 on floor. Richardson contributed a 9.950 on beam and a 9.900 on vault to power the Bruins.

INDIVIDUAL EVENT FINALS Youth was served as freshmen earned at least a share of three individual event titles. UCLA freshman Kate Richardson, who helped the Bruins to its third NCAA team title in four years, won the first individual title of her career when she turned in the highestscoring beam routine of the weekend with a 9.938. With the victory, Richardson became the fifth Bruin to earn an individual event national title in the past three years, marking the third straight season UCLA has produced three NCAA gold-medal winners. Overall, UCLA athletes have earned 22 individual women's gymnastics titles, tied for the second-highest total ever only behind Georgia's 26. Richardson's beam score topped her opening-round effort, when she and Nebraska junior Simpson each knocked down a 9.925 to earn first-team All-America honors. Simpson finished second to Richardson with another 9.925, while Alabama junior Rice placed third with a 9.887. Richardson won her second title of the night when she and teammate Dantzscher each collected a 9.900 on bars. Dantzscher and Richardson outscored junior Veronique Leclerc of Utah for the title, as Leclerc turned in a solid performance with a 9.863 for third place. For Dantzscher, it was the fourth individual title of her career, tying the school record held by Kim Hamilton (1987-89), as she also won the all-around, vault and floor exercise titles last year. Along with the team titles, the only NCAA title Dantzscher, a former U.S. Olympic team member, has not won is the beam, joining just two others-Kentucky's Jenny Hansen (1993-95) and Utah's Missy Marlowe (1991-92}-as the only athletes to win four of the five individual titles during their careers. Alabama freshman Ashley Milt!S bt!came the second rookie to win a title, as she won vault with a 9.9375. Miles, who posted the meet's only perfect 10 with her vault in Thursday's round, was one of just three competitors to top the 9.9 mark on vault. She outdistanced runner-up Dantzscher (9.9250), the defending champion, and junior Chelsa Byrd (9.9060) of Georgia to earn the title. Earning her second title in three days, Simpson also earned the biggest ovation of the championships as she turned in the goldmedal winning performance on floor. Simpson picked up the gold medal by scoring a 9.963 to topple defending champ Dantzscher, who earned a 9.938 in the first routine of the night. Simpson, who had never competed in the individual event finals before in her career, won Nebraska's first individual event title since Heather Brink won the vault in 2000. Simpson also joined Brink as the only Husker to win the all-around title, when she scored a 39.675 to get past Dantzscher (39.650). Dantzscher came back to lead UCLA to a team 196.950 total on Friday, easily surpassing defending champion Alabama (196.775) and third-place Georgia (196.125).
