EXCLUSIVE: U.S. Olympic Gymnast Jordyn Wieber On Training For London Games
Jordyn Wieber, the 17 year old artistic gymnast, comes to the 2012 Olympic games with a specific goal in mind. Though Wieber has had much success individually — she won the all-around gold medal at the 2011 Gymnastic World Championships in Tokyo — this summer Wieber is focused on the success of the U.S. gymnastics team. “To represent USA would be such an honor and our first priority would be the team competition, so getting the team gold would be the first goal,” remarks Wieber in our exclusive interview. Wieber, who was born in Michigan, began gymnastics at a young age. “I first started when I was about four. My mom and dad kinda put me in gymnastics because they noticed I had a lot of muscle definition and they thought it would be a good fit just 'cause I was strong . and then when I was about six or seven, I started competing,” Wieber told us. At the wee age of 17, Wieber isn’t much older than from when she first started, but she is surely the wiser. Though Wieber has high expectations for this summers' Olympic games in London, she isn’t going to let the pressure affect her. “But I've learned to just calm down and really just kinda, like I said, get in my zone and just do what I know how to do.”
