of great opportunities to stay involved with gymnastics. Recently, we launched the premier episode of "USA Gymnastics: Behind the Team," an online series available exclusively on the AT&T blue room Team USA Web site at www.attblueroom.com/teamusa.This series, scheduled to run through August 2008, will give you a behind-the-scenes look at USA Gymnastics' top athletes as they prepare to represent their country on the world stage. If you haven't checked it out yet, please do so, and stay tuned for upcoming episodes. For USA Gymnastics and many of our member clubs across the country, the summer months mean summer camps and the Tyson Fitness Challenge. Both provide kids with a fun and safe environment to learn gymnastics skills, and develop a strong foundation for becoming more physically fit. We continue in our drive to raise $1 million for Children's Miracle Network by the end of next year. The Tyson Fitness Challenge is designed to help you and your club support this valuable cause, and "help kids who need help." We have recently made it even easier to donate to Children's Miracle Network by providing on-line donation forms. For more information, go to www.usa-gymnastics.org /tysonfitnesschallenge. In keeping with the spirit of big international events, the largest gymnastics gathering in the world takes place this July at the World Gymnaestrada in Austria. The Alpine villages along the Rhine Valley are hosting more than 21,000 gymnasts from more than 50 countries for a full week of General Gymnastics performances. This past fall, the FIG renamed this discipline "Gymnastics for All," representing the all-inclusive spirit of this side of the sport. The USA delegation will consist of 400 people representing 10 clubs from across the United States. The USA delegation will also participate in a cooperative project with the Pan American Gymnastics Union (PAGU) when 800 participants join together for a special Closing Ceremony presentation.

Pro per n utritio n fo r you ng at h I etes is not only vital for optimal athletic performance, but also to their growth, development, and overall health. Young gymnasts have unique needs that include adequate caloric intake, hydration, and meal timing, to name a few. A high performance diet will consist of a variety of healthy-choice foods including: whole grains, vegetables, low-fat and lean protein sources, low-fat dairy products, and fruits. Fats and sugars should be consumed infrequently and in small amounts.

Energy Needs

c o ...., .c .,. ..., ""foF' ~ en z c

Daily caloric intakes for young athletes vary per age and activity level. Athletes involved in moderate-intensity level sports (i.e. golf, softball, baseball) versus higher-intensity level sports (i.e. football, basketball, gymnastics, tennis, soccer) will require more. Energy providing nutrients include carbohydrates, protein, and fat.

Car b o hydrate s Carbohydrates are the primary energy source for physical activity and are found in nearly all foods that we consume (grains, vegetables, fruits, and dairy) . At least 50-60 percent of a young athlete's total daily caloric intake should come from carbohydrates .

Carbohydrates .Good Choices vs. Bad Choices GROUP

BETTER CHOICE

Grains

Rye bread, Whole wheat bread, Cheerios

: WORSE CHOICE

White bread, fried breads, Sugary cereals

Vegetable

Fresh vegetables (fresh or frozen), not boiled too hard

Canned vegetables, fried vegetables

Fruit

Car bo hyd rat e Cat eg ories There are two categories of carbohydrates: Simple (fast absorbing) and Complex (slow absorbing). Slow carbs are best for sustained energy and should be the largest component of an athlete's diet.

Fats Fat is important for protecting organs, hormone production, providing protection and insulation to various organs of the body, and for supporting vitamin uptake. Fat intake should be approximately 20-30 percent of total caloric intake. Avoid saturated and h'ans fats, especially after being physically active (it slows down the uptake of necessary nutrients). Healthier choice fats include unsaturated fats (think from plant sources versus animal) .

Hydration Dehydration is counterproductive to enhanCing athletic performance. Minor dehydration impairs concentration, coordination, reaction time, and stamina. Children do not tolerate temperature extremes as well as older athletes. Special attention should be placed on making sure young athletes have adequate fluid intake before, during, and after activity. The following are suggestions to help maintain proper hydration: ~ 10-12 (80-96 oz) cups of water a day ~

12-20 oz before activity

~

6-12 oz during activity (every 15-20 min.)

~

2-3 cups for every pound lost after activity

BETTER CHOICE Pure water, low-sugar flavored water, low-sugar or no-sugar added juices, sports drinks (during and after exercise ONLY)

Competition Snacks What types of food are better choice snacks for on the go, or at competitions? ~ Go-gurt (portable yogurt), or other low-fat yogurt

WORSE CHOICE Coffee, tea, soda, alcoholic beverages, egg nog (fattening), milkshakes, beverages with high fructose corn syrup, sugary fruit juices

BY MIKE LORENZEN, NACGC/W PRESIDENT HE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH PLAYED HOST TO THE 2007 Women' s NCAA National Championships, which featured a 12team field with the top two teams from each NCAA Regional Championship. The University of Georgia not only won its third consecutive team title, but sophomore Courtney Kupets, a 2004 Olympic silver medalist, won the all-around honors for the second straight year and the vault title. Other event finals winners were: Alabama's Terin Humphrey (2004 Olympic medalist), uneven bars; Utah's Ashley Postell (2002 World Championships medalist), balance beam; and Alabama's Morgan Dennis, floor exercise. In the team competition, the top three teams from each of the two team preliminary sessions advanced to team finals, also known as the "Super Six." The top four gymnasts (including ties) on each event in each session become First Team All Americans and qualify to individual event finals on Saturday night and the next four finishers become Second Team All Americans. The gymnast with the highest single All-Around score from either session becomes the NCAA National All-Around Champion. In the first team preliminary session, the two-time defending champion Gym Dogs posted the top score with a 197.700 to edge past top-ranked Florida, which scored a 197.400. Nebraska started the meet with a miss from their very first performer on their first event, but demonstrated why they have become a regular in team finals with a very strong performance through the rest of the afternoon that was four-tenths better than Oklahoma's 196.25 and half a point ahead of Alabama's 196.125. Stanford came out strong in the evening session with a solid floor effort and a remarkable vault performance, earning a 49.525 that tied Georgia's phenomenal vault effort earlier that day. At the half way point in the session, Stanford held a narrow lead over Utah, 98.700 to 98.625. The other three teams had fallen back, with LSU at a 97.950 (rough start on bars) and Michigan and UCLA both at 97.825, promising a great deal of drama through the last several rotations. A tremendous bar score of 49.500 pushed the Utes ahead of Stanford after the third event. Things really heated up in the race for the third Super Six slot when a strong UCLA vault squad garnered a 49.425 to leapfrog over LSU and run away from a Michigan team that struggled on beam. Stanford' s 49.300 on beam to finish the meet showed impressive toughness and was the best beam score of the session, but Utah's 49.200 gave them the top spot at the end of the session. UCLA snagged the last qualifying spot at 196.475, just two tenths ahead of LSD. The Utes' 197.325 and Stanford's 197.200 made them the likely challengers to the top two teams from the afternoon session. The team finals started at a blistering pace with all six teams giving strong performances in the first rotation: Georgia scored 49.425 on bars; Utah was half a tenth back at 49.375 on floor; Florida had a 49.225 on beam; and Stanford scored a 49.225 on vault. The pressure intensified as every team finished their second events, and the Utes and Gym Dogs were tied with 98.75. Florida was only two tenths back and Stanford, UCLA, and Nebraska were stacked up right behind. A fall on bars forced the Utes to count a 9.65 that suddenly opened the door to a surging Gator squad that turned in an impressive 49.40 on vault to edge 12

Penn State Wins Men's NCAA Championships Team Title ENNSYLVANIA STATE UNIVERSITY, COMPETING ON its home turf in Rec Hall, won an NCAA-record 12th men's gymnastics team title at the 2007 Men's National Collegiate Gymnastics Championships, scoring 221.00 points. Per.n State defeated defending champions Oklahoma who scored a 220.20 while Stanford finished third with a 218.450. Oklahoma had a 1.6 point lead going into the final rotation, but the Nittany Lions performances on still rings moved them into first place. Penn State's Head Coach Randy Jepson said, "I am thrilled for our guys. We had a goal at the beginning of the season and they came through with flying colors. They never let down. I am really proud of Matt Cohen and the rest of the group." When asked if this was one of the highest points in his career, Jepson said, "It is going to be tough to beat. It is a special moment. Winning it in front of the fans and family is huge." Rounding out the top six tea ms were Michigan in fourth (218 .400), Illinois in fifth (217.300) and Minneso ta in sixth (217.150) . 2006 and 2007 Tyson American Cup Champion Jonathan Horton from Oklahoma said, "The competition was a lot of fw1. I enjoyed it. We didn't win but I was still really proud of the team and how we did." In the all-around, Oklahoma University's Taqiy AbdullahSimmons won the all-around title with a score of 55.750. The 2006 defending champion Horton and the University of Illinois' Wesley Haagensen tied for second with a score of 55.00 points, just 0.75 behind Abdullah-Simmons. Abdullah-Simmons said, "I am very excited about winning the all-around. It is always a pleasure to win any competition, let alone the National Championships. It is kind of hard to talk about it because the team always comes first. But winning the all-around is nice to have in a class of such great people that were ahead of me." During event finals, Horton took top honors on floor and high bar with a score of 9.650 and 9.675, respectively. California's Tim McNeill also grabbed two event titles on pommel horse and parallel bars with scores of 9.650 and 9.725. Stanford's Alex Schorsch won rings with a score of 9.750. There was a tie on vault between Stanford's David Sender and Ohio State's Pejman EbralUmi, both scoring 9.30. 14

Who wants to see another first?

The people of Chevron know about being first. Chevron was the first to be designated TOP TIER gasoline by BMW, GM, Honda andToyota. So it makes sense that Chevron has been, and will continue to be, a proud sponsor of U.s.A. Gymnastics, a team that tirelessly strives for top tier performance. Their success is inspirational and we wish them all the best.

TIson FI ness Challenge: Raising funds to help children in need L to R: Miracle Children Whitney Pinson and Saylor Kirkpatrick with Bela Karolyi.

at FirSt,

the bad earaches seemed harmless. But when Whitney Pinson's earaches became worse, her parents, Tracy and Michelle, took her to a doctor who sent her home with antibiotics. As the earaches persisted, Whitney's doctor decided to do some exploratory surgery because he believed scar tissue might be causing the pain. When he came out after the surgery, the news was grim. "He had a somber face/' Michelle said. "He told us it was a tumor." In 2004 at age 10, Whitney was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a type of bone cancer. Whitney then underwent chemotherapy treatments every 14 days, with radiation treatments midway through, with the goal of finishing treatment in seven months compared to the standard 12 months. Whitney's main concern was getting back to gymnastics at North Florida Gymnastics Center in Orange Park, Fla., I=or a fun , easYwa t where she was a Level for Child '1\...

However, just before entering 7th grade, Whitney began having problems with double vision and headaches while at a volleyball camp. Although an MRI was negative, spinal tap results showed that Ewing's cells were in her spinal fluid. Whitney was once again fighting for her life. Since learning her cancer had returned in August 2006, Whitney has gone through many chemotherapy treatments and has once again proven to her parents that she is "the strongest person they have ever known." Her progress has been better than doctors expected and after a bone marrow transplant in April 2007, Whitney is currently disease-free. After a long journey and now 13 years old, Whitney is very excited to get back to a normal teenage life. 13
