In 1996, gymnast Kerri Strug vaulted into history. The anchor for Team USA at the Atlanta Olympics, she competed on an injured ankle to help secure women’s gymnastics their first-ever team gold medal – and Tuesday, she watched this year’s ‘Fab Five’ win the second team gold. The now married mom of one is a spokesperson for Hilton HHonors’s Support the Dream program, which allows fans to connect with Olympians. "Since I know how much the support of the fans means to the athletes, it’s great to be part of a program where fans can send good luck messages to Team USA," says Strug, 34. While at the Games with her husband, Robert Fischer III, the Olympic gold medalist is blogging for PEOPLE.com about her experiences in London.
It’s definitely been an unforgettable Olympic Games so far for U.S. Women’s Gymnastics. Gabby and Aly both looked focused and ready for the competition as they entered the arena, and just like the team finals, they got off to a great start on the vault.
In the women’s all-around, momentum and confidence are key to success, so starting on the vault was definitely beneficial to the girls since this is one of their best events.
