Kristina Baskett from Utah to Hollywood

Former University of Utah gymnast, Kristina Baskett has found life after gymnastics in the bright lights of Hollywood, using her gymnastics training as a stunt woman.

Stunts is a natural transition for former gymnasts, Jenny Hansen and Heidi Moneymaker are among many gymnasts who made the transition.

Pac-12 networks put out this fluff piece about Kristina Baskett, former Utah gymnast now Hollywood stuntwoman.

Kristina's resume includes work on the movie Divergent, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (the Michael Bay one), Make It or Break It, Glee, Marvel's Agents of Shield and the list goes on.  For her resume, visit Kristina's IMDB page.

In this video, Kristina teaches her interview some of her stunt tricks. Looks like fun.

Kristina Baskett is stuntin'. Literally. The former The University of Utah Athletics star joins Sports Report to talk about her amazing career as a Hollywood stuntwoman tonight at 9 PT on Pac-12 Networks.

Katelyn Ohashi Sets the Rumors Straight

American Cup winner Katelyn Ohashi has been out of competition for a while due to injuries.

In April, she turned down international assignments at the City of Jesolo Cup because she was recovering from shoulder surgery. She was absent from the national championships in August, presumably for the same reason.
