Today on NBC Sports they televised the highlights of the 2003 Men's U.S. Gymnastics Championships from June. I was only able to watch parts of it but it was certainly inspiring!
One such inspiring athlete was Jason Gatson. This young man was the youngest-ever U.S. world team member at just 17 in 1997. Since that time he has sustained two significant knee injuries from which he has recovered. During his recovery, he spent extra time training on the still rings and made it into one of his best events. The benefits of this training were impressive to see both in his incredible upper body development as well in his demonstration of pure strength.
Another was Alexander Artemev. Although not as muscular as Jason Gatson, this kid can fly on the pommel horse. There is a nice story about him in the Denver Post at www.denverpost.com/Stories/0,1413,36%257E118%257E1501622,00.html
USA Gymnastics maintains a list of upcoming televised events at http://www.usa-gymnastics.org/events/tv-calendar.html. Also check out the "USA Gymnastics Event Calendar" link on that page as well.
For those of you lucky enough to live in Southern California, you need to buy tickets now for the 2003 World Gymnastics Championships, which are just two weeks away. The Championships are August 16-24 at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim. This event also serves as the only route for athletes and countries to qualify for the 2004 Olympic Games. For more information go to the http://www.worlds03.com/ website. Also, mark your calendars for 2004 for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials at the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim on June 24-27.
For the rest of us, at least we’ll be able to watch the highlights of the World Championships on NBC Sports on Aug. 23 and 24 from 2-4 p.m. EST, plus one hour of primetime coverage from 7-8 p.m. Aug. 24. The Trials will be broadcast by NBC Sports, with the men's finals scheduled to air from 1-3 p.m. on June 26, 2004, the women's prelims from 8-10 p.m. on June 26, and the women's finals from 7-9 p.m. June 27.
