Bridget Sloan: National Champion, World Champion, NCAA All-Around Champion

Bridget Sloan has been a busy girl.

The 2008 Beijing team silver medalist added another title to her already impressive gymnastics resume: National College Athletics Association (NCAA) Gymnastics All-Around Champion.

Bridget joined the University of Florida's stellar gymnastics team this winter after she put off her college education to make a bid for the 2012 Olympic team going to London. While most college freshmen are more interested in when the next party is going to be, Bridget has found her niche with the Gators.

Not only did Bridget get an individual title to her name, she led the Gators to their first NCAA national title, narrowly beating defending champs, the University of Oklahoma.

Bridget was the youngest member of silver medaling Team USA at the Beijing Olympics. The following year, Bridget went on to win a National Championship and then she cinched a World Championship title in London that same year.

Bridget tried to make a bid for the 2012 Olympic team going to London, but withdrew from the trials due to injury.
